Thom Harr

Office & Membership Administrator

Thom Harr (he/him), a southwestern PA native, has had a strong love of biking (and Pittsburgh) for as long as he can remember. His first exposure to BikePGH was in 2014, when he wanted to bike the streets of Pittsburgh, but was nervous to do so. After finding the official Pittsburgh Bike Map, he realized how beautiful and easy biking the city could be. Thom joined BikePGH as a supporter, then shortly after as an active volunteer. This was in addition to the participation with other bike-centric activities and group rides, such as the Pittsburgh Underwear Ride, Critical Mass, and Full Moon Features. When he isn’t on his bike, you can find him adventuring with his son, visiting his favorite art galleries, or summoning animals with his Snow White comparable superpowers. He can be reached at
