Pro BMX Shows, Music, Bike Expo, Photo Booth and more await Pedal PGH Riders!
Save some smiles for after your ride on August 5th, you’ll need them. At 11am the Finish Line Festival kicks off and welcomes riders to stay awhile and enjoy music, purchase lunch, spend time with friends, and continue the bicycle fun. Be there in person to see professional BMX stunt riders take to the air. The Rise Above BMX high-flying act is not to be missed. In between BMX shows kick back with a free beer from Straub while DJ Zombo fills the air with music.
Also, there will be plenty of scenic spots along the Pedal PGH route for pictures. Heck, we’ve even closed down the Birmingham Bridge so you can grab a snapshot with downtown as the backdrop. But, don’t miss the photo booth at the Festival. Flash those pearly whites and take home a free souvenir picture.
After you’ve grabbed a souvenir picture you’ll still have time to peruse the expo. If you missed the bike expo in March you’ll have second chance to indulge your craving for two-wheeled fun. In one place you’ll find tents chock full of Pittsburgh bike shops, biking apparel, bike magazines, and BikePGH’s community partners. Look for free give-aways, bike maps, and info on all the new and exciting bike news in Pittsburgh.

Car- Free, 1-18 miles of car-free roads and trails.
