Positive Spin Middle Schoolers Complete Long Distance Bike Ride

After training all summer long, Positive Spin youth completed a 50-mile ride along the Great Allegheny Passage

Positive Spin is our cycling program for middle school youth. Positive Spinners learn the rules of the road, basic bike maintenance, how to become civically involved, and how to navigate Pittsburgh while also training to complete a long-distance ride. This program operates on a seasonal basis in Fall, Spring, and Summer, and works primarily with Pittsburgh Public Schools. This summer Positive Spinners rode a combined 5,000 miles with their instructors. Check out the photos below and please donate to this wonderful program by clicking here.
