Now that the snow is gone and the sun is out (and gas costs too much) biking is back in a big big way. I am really impressed with the biking community in Pittsburgh. BikePGH is the place to learn more about all things bike in Pittsburgh. (I also love their website design and function which was built by clickNathan – Hi Nathan!). One of my goals for this summer is to get some time on a bike – maybe we can even organize some IheartPGH bike rides – leave a comment if you are interested.
Here are two groups that organize bike rides that are open for anyone to join:
Beginner Trail Rides for Mountain Bikers – Fridays, 6pm meet at the tennis courts by Braddock and Forbes. Click here for more info.
Team Decaf & Team Caffine at Tazzo D’Oro
Tuesdays: Team Decaf – 10-20 miles in length. Various routes around the burgh at a comfortable pace. Rides are fairly flat with a few hills. RAIN CANCELS
Thursdays: Team Caffeine – 20-30 length. Various routes are hilly and intense. We re-group at the top of hills and the strongest riders may not wait. RAIN CANCELS

Serious about Mountain Biking? – check out Dirt Rag – which is one of the leading magazines for the sport and it happens to be based right here in Pittsburgh.
