“Local bike-advocacy organization Bike Pittsburgh recently updated its Biking 101 guide with expert tips; you can pick up a guide for free from your local public library or at the Bike Pittsburgh offices, in Lawrenceville.
Bike Pittsburgh also has a list of how-to videos available at www.bikepgh.org. Its website also has a map of the city that provides all the best and safest cycling routes; paper copies of the map are widely available at bike stores.”
