Pittsburgh BikeFest

Image
What is BikeFest? BikeFest is Pittsburgh’s biggest cycling event for cyclists by cyclists. It’s BikePGH’s annual celebration of bicycling, showcasing Pittsburgh in all of its uniqueness and beauty. It is not an organized event, but a framework for volunteers and organizations to organize bicycle-themed events. Whether you ride everyday, the weekends, or just always wanted to try, BikeFest has an event for you! Pittsburgh is filled with interesting things to see and do, and there is no better way to experience the city than on a bicycle. So we decided to celebrate the two to both raise awareness of the bike as a fun, healthy, and environmentally friendly way to get around, and to highlight some of the amazing things Pittsburgh has to offer. There are a wide variety of bikers and organizations in this city and if we can all get to know one another, we’ll be able to make Pittsburgh a more bike friendly and livable city. the site...

What Pelotonia aspires to be - The Dispatch

Nothing about the Pan-Massachusetts Challenge is small. Not the signature route of the enduring bicycle tour: 192 miles from Sturbridge to Cape Cod. Not the number of riders who participate: 5,000 this year (from 36 states and eight countries) and 59,000 since 1980. And certainly not the money the bike-athon has contributed toward making the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston a world leader in the fight against the disease: $270 mil- lion in 30 years. "The PMC has made what we do at Dana-Farber possible," said Dr. Edward J. Benz Jr., president of the 62-year-old cancer-research center and hospital. Which is why the PMC is what central Ohio's budding Pelotonia Tour wants to be when it grows up. more...
