Update: Bicycles Now Allowed in Allegheny Cemetery!

Several months ago I wrote this post “No Bikes Allowed in Allegheny Cemetery” and I am thrilled to tell you that the “No” part of the title has officially been removed.

Bicycles are now allowed in Allegheny Cemetery.

If you decide to take this beautiful circuitous route through the Lawrenceville and Garfield neighborhoods of Pittsburgh, please be respectful.  The cemetery is private property, not City of Pittsburgh property. The Allegheny Cemetery has been very generous to allow bike riders on their property, and we owe it to them to ride with caution, respect, and consideration.

Please follow these simple rules:

* Ride safely. The speed limit inside the cemetery is 20 mph.
* Ride only on paved roads. Please do not ride on the grass.
* Respect funeral processions. Allow them to pass and do not cut through the middle of them.
* Don’t ride when the cemetery is closed. You can see their hours HERE.

Hooray!
