Tonight at OTB: Raffle to Raise Money for Cyclist That Was Attacked

What started as a simple meet up of our message board readers has quickly morphed into a fundraising effort to support a local cyclist who was attacked last week by a car driver. Bike Pittsburgh is coordinating the effort and local businesses have been incredibly generous, donating a growing list of prizes to raffle.

All proceeds will go towards helping cover the cyclist’s medical bills.

Join us tonight!:

OTB, Over the Bar Bicycle Cafe

2518 E Carson St

starting at 7pm

Thanks to OTB for hosting, recruiting so many donations, and for saving a keg of East End Brewery’s Pedal Pale Ale for us!
