The Peoples Local Loop. A beginner friendly ride along the riverfront.



About the Ride:

Ride as far as you like along Pittsburgh’s famous river-front trail in South Side. This novice-friendly, all-ages ride starts at Southside Riverfront Park  and offers up to 12 miles of car-free trails. We will have a water stop for participants at Golden Triangle Bike Rental on the trail as well as a Rest Stop to enjoy some great snacks by Whole Foods at the Start/ Finish line area, and maybe even a surprise or two along the way.

Whenever you decide to end your ride there will be the Finish line festival at the Southside Riverfront Park from 11am-3pm.  Everyone is welcome to stay and enjoy the day. At the festival, there will be restrooms, bike parking (don’t forget to bring your bike lock), music, food trucks, a cycling expo, and a free photo booth. It’s going to be fun!

Start time: 10 AM
