Welcome, John! There are several people on the message board from that end of town. I too am a commuter, though I live north and don’t get east all that often.

There are plenty of group rides to meet up with, many but not all advertised on the board. Keep an eye out for the couple of riding games we have here, too, Tag-o-Rama and Wheelset of Fortune. Plenty more beyond that, too.

Here’s me on my first bike tour this summer doing the PGH–DC Jail Rail Pell Mell Porta-Potty Trippin Trail! WHAT A BLAST! I’m standing on the Mason-Dixon Line.

Name: Mike
Neighborhood: Churchill, formerly Squirrel Hill, Beechview, Mt. Washington, and Oakland

# of bikes: 1 Bright Yellow Iron Horse 2.0

Been lurking om this board for a little while now and wanted to say hi! I’ve been biking to work off and on from various neighborhoods to Downtown since 2009. The cycling bug bit me at church camp when I was little and I continued with it in the Boy Scouts and Venturing until I came to Pitt. Didn’t bike too much during that time, but getting a job Downtown and a need for cheap transportation got me back into it.

Currently, I only have time to bike once a week or so due to the time involved and being a new father/husband, but I love every minute of it when I can!

Probably won’t have a whole lot to offer due to my limited riding, but I’m looking forward to chatting more with you fine folks!

I’ve been around a long time — used to drag kids to CMU Cyert Center in a trailer, they are a bit too big for that now…

Pix: taking Big Hop to the Alps (Col de Ramaz), like all rookies forgot to zip…
