Get on Your Bike: Events Not to Miss in Pittsburgh

Give Away Some of That Money

Tomorrow Whole Foods will donate 5% of all purchases to Bike Pittsburgh. You could shop there, spend $100 and $5 will go to that swell organization, or you could shop at the East End Co-op and support local food and give money directly to Bike Pittsburgh. But if you’re going to shop at Whole Foods anyway, tomorrow is a pretty good day to do it. Put a basket on your bike and shop with a friend.

North Side Exploration

After your shopping extravaganza, join us for a very VERY exciting exploration of the beautiful North Side. Meet at Buena Vista Coffee (1501 Buena Vista Street) in the Mexican War Streets Neighborhood at 6:30. We’ll end up at the Park House on E. Ohio Street for tasty beverages, conversation, and meaningful glances.

One of my favorite things about riding bikes is the community aspect of it. You can be social while riding a bike with plenty of friends in a way you just can’t with a bunch of cars. I have met most of my best friends, roommates, and romances through bikes and it just keeps getting better. So dust it off, friends, even if you haven’t been on a bike in decades and come out! If you can’t make it tomorrow night, maybe you can make it Saturday for a ride that I’m super giddy about:

12 Bridges, 3 Rivers, 21 Miles (there are still about 432 bridges left to explore for those who haven’t been to this magnificently gorgeous city!)

from Bike Pittsburgh:

This week Team Decaf Weekend will tour the best views of the rivers and city – via our many bridges.  They’ll cross the three rivers twelve times on one ride to see some stunning city/river views.

Sat, April 17, 11am – 1pm

Meet at Tazza D’oro, 1125 N. Highland Ave, Highland Park (map)
Please join us. The ride is not for the total novice, but it’s also not for the race enthusiast.

We hit the road at 11:00am sharp.

ALL are welcome.

Questions? dano@direct-axis.net or call ride leader, Dan O’Donnell, at 412.559.4001.

Team Decaf is a regular, ongoing ride that meets at Tazza D’Oro Cafe in Highland Park.  They aren’t necessarily a team, just a bunch of folks that like to drink coffee and ride bikes.  Team Decaf is the more casual paced counterpart to Team Caffeine.  All are welcome.
