Pedal Pittsburgh 2009 Quick Ride Report

I rode Pedal Pittsburgh last year, but this year it seemed a little easier. The organizers removed the climb past the Igloo at the beginning, but I don't know if that was it. I could be in better shape this year. : ) I recall we took almost 8 hours to ride the 60 mile route last year, but I realized we stopped a lot for one member of our group. Not this year, we took very little breaks. We started the ride around 8:30am and finished 12:30pm. We did the 50 mile route which did not include Mt. Washington. The route ended up being 45 miles though, because we cut out a section that we knew from last year was not that exciting. Another change this year was the start/end was at Southside Works. A little more confusing for parking, but it was a nice atmosphere.
