KQV just broadcast an interview with Lynn Manion, Exec Director of the Airport Corridor Transportation Association, on its Pittsburgh Profiles program.
Topic: ACTA has just launched the Walk Pittsburgh Challenge, a method for compiling and tracking all the walking that people do in and around Pittsburgh. This is quite new, only a month or so old. ACTA is partnering with the Oakland Transportation Management Association and Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership to bring this about.
If necessary I may stop and wait until I’ve caught my breath. Walking your bike really isn’t an option for self-respecting cyclists; unless of course an officer directs you to do it, like on festival days at the Point.
At worst I might turn off onto an easier-looking street.
Like I did on Brushton the other day (just before that final rise).
But I had an excuse! I was riding my under-geared commuter bike.
Argh! I can’t believe I’m admitting any of this in public.
The unutterable shame of it…
This is some kind of thing for pedestrians?
I saw “Walk Pittsburgh” was a sponsor of the WYEP thing in Schenley Plaza last weekend and had been meaning to look up what that was.
I walk to work a few times a month, and walk to a lot of places in the evening/weekend since my wife doesn’t like to ride when we go out. I had a fitbit to track my walk miles from a “walking challenge” we had at work but I lost it. Seemed to work pretty well aside from that though.
