I have two grandmothers in their 80s, and I think it would be really fun to take them for a ride around the city trails or preferably on the GAP outside of the city.

Is there any place to rent a pedicab for this purpose? And to be clear… I want to do the biking part. Not someone else.

Thanks!

There’s a ton of pedicabs that operate on the North Shore on the weekends when there’s baseball games. The have a stand at the casino and shuttle folks back and forth from the Casino parking garage to the stadium.

***EDIT: sorry, nevermind, I read your ‘I want to do the biking’ at the last second.

However, try Bicycle Heaven. I’ve seen a pedicab there and they may let you rent.

Or see if Green Gears will lease you one on a no-pickups basis.

I’d make sure to double check the section of trail you’re planning to ride. As I’m sure you know, some parts of the trail are narrow enough that riding a pedicab may not be feasible, and other spots have bollards that may present difficulty. The ramps up to the bridges over the rails between Munhall and McKeesport are at your own discretion. Will you take them both at the same time?
