POSTPONED: Join BikePGH for a Bike Ride to Support Safe Trips in the Strip

Group of people riding bikes on Smallman Street in the Strip District

We support Safe Trips In The Strip

BikePGH is working to make a safe connection through the Strip District. Join us for a bike ride through this area to learn about the existing issues, hear about potential solutions that we have learned about from the City, as well as an opportunity to share your own story and experience. 

Our Safe Trips in the Strip campaign is advocating to make this connection easy for people to use. We need to make this high-use corridor safe, and simple to navigate for people who bike and use these streets. We are collecting people’s stories via video interviews from anyone and everyone about their experience getting through the Strip.
