Bike Pittsburgh is a member-based organization that works to protect cyclist’s rights and promote the vision of making Pittsburgh a safer and more enjoyable place to live and to ride.

The work we do is at the heart of urban environmentalism – raising awareness about oil dependency, pollution, congestion, safe streets, good urban design, and public health. We are partnering with local stakeholders to improve our streets, bridges, and trails in order to make riding to work, shopping, and exercising by bicycle safe and fun for everyone in Pittsburgh.

Why Bike Pittsburgh Works:

Since 2002, Bike Pittsburgh has been here helping, asking, training and working to make Pittsburgh a better place to live, work, and ride. We bring cyclists in the region together with the know-how to make bicycling a safe, convenient and fun way to get around. Our achievements rely on three key elements:

  • A professional staff that meets regularly with government officials in the meetings that affect your cycling environment
  • Dedicated volunteer leaders and a board of directors who meet regularly to keep us on track
  • Active members who come from a multitude of backgrounds to combine the strengths of commuters, bike clubs, trial users, racers, and mt. bikers to create a potent constituency.

To find out in more detail what steps we are taking to improve bicycling in the Pittsburgh, please read about our projects and campaigns in our campaigns section.
