BikePGH Family Guide launch & Virtual Q&A on July 19th

Introducing BikePGH’s first-ever Family Guide!

With the needs of families and caregivers in mind, BikePGH educators created a comprehensive resource for anyone who wants to be able to carry a child on their bicycle at any stage of development and teach a child to ride a bike.

Riding with children can feel like a daunting task but with BikePGH family guide in hand, you’ll be able to enjoy family bike rides for years to come.

To celebrate the launch of our Family Guide, we’re hosting a free virtual Q&A session with an expert panel of Pittsburgh biking parents. Learn how these parents ride year-round with kids from toddlers to teens.
