Ride with a purpose

While PedalPGH is a ton of fun, it’s not just about the joy of a summer ride. Registration fees from PedalPGH have raised over $1,000,000 for Bike Pittsburgh’s work since 2012.

Our mission is to transform our streets to make biking and walking commonplace for all Pittsburghers in order to improve our quality of life and reduce the harmful effects of car dependence in our communities.

We accomplish this mission by advocating for policy change and infrastructure improvements to make our streets more bikeable and walkable. We train bicyclists to confidently bike in the city and create educational materials that improve street safety for all users. We host events and build community to celebrate biking, walking, and car-free transportation.
