Walk, Bike, and Dance in the Streets this Summer
BikePGH is celebrating the 5th Anniversary of OpenStreetsPGH this year and kicked off the summer season on Saturday, May 25th visiting Pittsburgh’s East End community. OpenStreetPGH temporarily closes streets to car traffic and invites Pittsburghers to reimagine their streets as places for people not just cars.
Participants had the chance to explore the longest OpenStreetsPGH route ever with 4.4 mile loop traveling through Homewood, Larimer, East Liberty, Shadyside, and North Point Breeze.
Presented by UPMC Health Plan, OpenStreetsPGH is Pittsburgh’s fastest growing free event series that opens miles of streets to people of all ages and abilities.
The event is organized by BikePGH, a registered 501(c)(3) charitable non-profit, who works on behalf of the Pittsburgh community to make the city safe and accessible for everyone to bike and walk. BikePGH is committed to improving the health and quality of life of Pittsburgh through increased access to safe bicycling and walking facilities, and by creating opportunities to bike and walk for all.
