Local Yogi Richard Gartner hosts his third yoga themed BikeFest ride
“My BikeFest event ‘Cycling Through Samsara’ is a few weeks away! At 9am on Sunday, August 11, we’ll do a few minutes of yoga as a warm-up, go on a 20-mile ride, end where we started and do another half-hour of yoga to stretch and cool down. This is the third year I’m hosting the ride. I’m an advocate of both yoga and bicycling, so designing a ride for Pittsburgh’s biggest bike festival makes sense. Riders in previous years have asked what “samsara” means, and here I describe the significance of this ride to me. . . . ”
