For more experienced riders that wish to challenge themselves, this ride offers 62 miles (100km) of Pittsburgh’s roaming slopes. Starting in the South Side Works, this route will take you through more of the South Side, the North Side, the East End and an epic final climb up to Mt. Washington. This ride will test your climbing and reward riders with some of the best views of Pittsburgh.
