BikePGH Celebrates National Bike Month

Enjoy Bike Anywhere Week And A Sustaining Member Gift!

As we kick off National Bike Month, it is the perfect time to start your biking journey, and BikePGH’s celebratory Bike Anywhere Week is the perfect place to start. It also makes perfect sense that an entire month be dedicated to the beauty of the bicycle, and we’ll tell you why.

Started by the League of American Cyclists in 1956, National Bike Month shines a light on the joys and multitudinous benefits of cycling. Communities across the country come together every May to promote all kinds of cycling– to get to work and school, do errands, meet up with friends, for fitness, to enjoy the outdoors… the list goes on.

So back to you: Have you been wanting to start cycling again? Are you interested in learning about our local resources available? Do you want to join voices with your neighbors to make Pittsburgh’s streets safer and more accessible for all? You can find all this and more at Bike Anywhere Week: five days of in-person events for everyone and a real celebration of all that BikePGH has to offer. Bike Anywhere Week has events and opportunities to learn and improve cycling skills, understand our advocacy efforts, and become a part of Pittsburgh’s diverse cycling community.

This event series is free and open to the public (with some registration required – be sure to check the schedule to make sure!), as BikePGH is committed to providing resources to communities throughout Pittsburgh free of charge. This is all possible through the support of our members.
