Map & Routes
Pittsburgh Bike Map
Pittsburgh can seem like a daunting place to ride a bicycle for a new cyclist or a newcomer to the city, but it shouldn’t be. Our city’s beauty, in many ways, stems from our lack of a traditional street grid, our rivers, and our many hills — three elements that also make riding in the city challenging at times, especially since these geographic components provide most of our neighborhood connections.
The Pittsburgh Bike map is designed with the commuter and urban explorer in mind, in the hopes that folks can learn some safer routes between neighborhoods, as well as explore some new territory. Click here to support projects like the Pittsburgh Bike Map.
Features of the Official Pittsburgh Bike Map, version 9
Since our last bike map was released 3 years ago, the City of Pittsburgh has extended the bike network to include the addition of over 20 miles of new bike lanes, Neighborways, and trails; and Healthy Ride has been reborn as POGOH bike share with new stations, and for the first time ever, electric bicycles in their new fleet!
