*Update Mar 23, 10am: Governor Wolf’s Administration clarified their policy and included bike repair as essential life-supporting businesses. At this time bike shops are permitted to be open for repairs, but should be closed for sales according to the executive order. Click here to see how we made this happen.
Despite many businesses closing their doors many bike shops stay open (with some modifications) to keep you rolling
For the 25% of Pittsburghers who do not have access to a personal vehicle, biking and public transit are how they get around. For now biking is a more isolated and recommended form of transit. It’s also a great way for a lot of people to stay active and get some fresh air.
Many local businesses are adjusting their daily routine to keep their doors open and safely accommodate those who need them.
Support your local bike shop at this time. Drop off your bike for a tune-up or purchase a gift card.
