St. John Chrysostom on Saline Street.

First tag I’ve ever gotten! Frankly, I’m surprised…

Great to have a new entry on the People-Who-Got-Tags Spread sheet, Mr. Destructicity^

We now have 63 riders who picked up tags, and a total of 397 tags! Coming up on 400.

New Tag:

It’s a bit outside of the box, I know. Sorry. Guess it’s just the Blue Devil in me.

(And if folks think it’s too outside of the box I have a backup.)

I hope jonawebb is paying attention to this beautiful obstruction of saddle angle! ;p

Far out, man! I think I have seen you on my way back into the city from one of our offices before. I take it you commute?


Mr. Destructicity
Participant
#

I do, albeit very very slowly in the evenings. And this happens to be right on my way home…

Whoever picks this up (and it won’t be me, at least not before mid-Saturday), please document how you got there and got back. I suspect this is unexplored territory for a lot of us.

Yeah I am curious. There are ways to get there but I wanna know the best/safest route


Mr. Destructicity
Participant
#

Without giving anything away I will say that I have found the major roadway this is adjacent to is the best/safest/most direct route.

OK, I’ve biked there (via a trip through the Wabash Tunnel and south on Saw Mill Run to West Liberty one day). How did you get from Tahn to, say, the Dormont Eat & Park?

Stu, you rebel!

Dunno how abracadabra does it but my usual commute is S 18th St. -> Warrington -> West Liberty.

Mr d- I think I may see you climbing west liberty on my way home from the bethel office on Tuesday afternoons. I always think “good for him!” as I go past…

I must have passed that mural 100 times over the years and never noticed it! Is it a recent addition, or is this just a case of driving by too fast in the car?

I think it’s relatively new… less than ayear old. I found out about where it was from this article http://ebooks.mtlebanon.org/mtl/mtl-062011/49.html from June 2011. This was the perfect tag, IMO, because it only took me about 5 minutes to find on Google and it prompted me to explore a part of Allegheny county that I had never been to, and get out on my bike on a beautiful day.

I took the west end bridge to greentree rd, then down Allender to Dormont which intersects W Liberty pretty nearby. Then I came back on W Liberty, with a brief detour at casa rasta in beechview (highly highly recommended), then up boggs and down william and arlington to w carson, then across the smithfield street bridge. Virtually no part of this was bike-friendly per se, it was all roads with lots of cars, except for maybe allender, dormont, boggs and william. Nothing that made me really uncomfortable but like I said I wouldn’t call it bike friendly.

New tag in a little bit…

Yeah, this went up last year. It used to be a billboard advertising Dyke Construction. Made me snigger every time I passed it.

New tag

You might recognize this sign if you fix your bike, and not at Kraynick’s.

(that was a terrible haiku but I’m tired)

I rode out at 1am, got the pics, came home, created a picasa acct., and then made an account here to get this tag. I only hope I got the html right.

sorry about the crappy quality, but it was raining, it was ~1:20am when I got there, and it was dark (obviously). The first pic shows my bike outside the Construction Junction fence (it was locked, so I couldn’t get in for a better pic), and the next two were taken to show the sign inside the fence in better detail. On the way home, I grabbed a new tag…

It’s another mural! This tag is ~1.2 miles away from the previous one. If you like good beer and hot dogs, maybe you’ve seen it…

New tag, in another untagged neighborhood. Besides the view, I thought this little glen was worth exploring. There’s some interesting low traffic connections to other parts of the city.

Glad to be here, but I’m worried that I may have started something addictive…

As for the bike, it is a 3-speed. You can see it up close here or when I’m volunteering at Free Ride. Sometimes, I like to pretend my bike is a Chicago-made version of the Van Sweringen.

new tag!

this apparently jewish cemetery is nestled near the bottom of one of my favorite climbs/descents, right at the tippy top of the blue box.

904 Geyer Road, Reserve Twp

New tag, from another untagged neighborhood, this time on the bottom edge of the blue box. I hope this photo conveys the panoramic views from this area — they are really amazing.

BTW, the cemetery in the previous tag is the Machsekei Hadas Cemetery. There are quite a few Jewish cemeteries in that area, making me think there is some interesting history there.

If you need another clue, let me know. I think this is pretty basic, but I don’t want it to drag on.


Marko82

It’s a good clue & pic. I just havent got the time to get there. Besides, you can almost see it from your last tag.

I’ve always loved that cemetery on Geyer Road. I never stopped to really check it out, but it was a highlight of my rides out that way. Thanks for tagging it, HV!

Congrats. Yes, it is a ride up Basic street. But aren’t those cliffs amazing? I felt like I was in the Laurel Highlands.
