Bicycles can be used for transport, exercise or sport. But we choose recreation! Using our city’s trails, parks, and roadways, we’ll view Pittsburgh from the seat of a bike. On our biking trips, we explore sections of the Great Allegheny Passage, the Three Rivers Heritage Trail, neighborhood parks, and more!
Before we hit the trails, Trip Leaders will provide a brief lesson on bicycle fitting, safety and etiquette, and then we’ll strap on our helmets. Venture Outdoors requires bicycle helmets on all biking trips. Helmets are an important piece of safety equipment and you must wear a helmet to participate. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, wearing a bicycle helmet is 85-88% effective in preventing or lessening head and brain injuries. If you plan to bring your own bike on a trip, please bring your own helmet or let us know if you will need to borrow one.
Have a group of 10 or more? We’re happy to customize any of our trips or we can create something based on your interests.
