TONIGHT on WQED: Rick Sebak looks at Pittsburgh’s Dirty Dozen bike race

Premieres January 26, 2011 at 7:30 pm on WQED TV in Pittsburgh

Iconic local TV personality, Rick Sebak, has a new show called Pittsburgh and A Lot of Other Stuff, that will be showcasing the Annual Dirty Dozen Bike Ride.  The ride is most known for the climb up Beechview’s Canton Ave, the steepest street in the world.

As Rick Sebak puts it: The Dirty Dozen Bike Ride is a Pittsburgh tradition, held on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Bicyclists are invited to try and pedal up the 13 steepest hills in the city.  “Steevo” Cummings has won the race seven times, including the 2010 ride.  In this promo for a special presentation on WQED’s IT’S PITTSBURGH & A LOT OF OTHER STUFF, Steevo shares some of his thoughts on the race. The special premieres January 26, 2011 at 7:30 pm on WQED TV in Pittsburgh and at www.wqed.org/its-pittsburgh

For those without televisions, OTB (Over The Bar) Bicycle Cafe will be holding a special screening for a Screening Party with Drink Specials starting at 6:30, 2518 East Carson St in the South Side.
