Women & Biking: Pittsburgh Business Owners Who Love Bikes

Support these women-owned Pittsburgh businesses

In the lead-up to our Women’s History Month culminating event, the annual Women & Biking Forum presented by Dollar Bank, we are featuring blogs on women who love biking. This first blog post features Pittsburgh women who ride and/or support biking through their business. From providing excellent bike parking or bike pumps for visitors, to crafting body care products for adventurers, these women support Pittsburgh women who bike.

Contributing to local business is contributing back to the community. These businesses are critical to our local economy and to growing vibrant places to live, bike, and walk.

Do you or a friend belong on this list? Email us at jane@bikepgh.org with a photo, info about your business, and tell us why you ride.

Valentina Scholar | Bike the Burgh & Walk the Burgh Tours

“With Bike the Burgh Tours I want to reveal the true beauty of Pittsburgh and promote biking as a healthy, green and sustainable method of recreation and transportation. Besides the awesome freedom of feeling bike riding gives you, I started biking pretty much out of necessity when I was living in a big urban context where cars are just an unnecessary expense.”
