Coronavirus Update: Canceled, Postponed, and Ongoing BikePGH Events

We are not canceling, but are postponing events in hopes we can celebrate together soon

We are paying close attention to recommendations from local and national authorities and are making changes now in order to protect the health and safety of the thousands who take part in our programming and attend our events both large and small. 

We are making every effort to reschedule our events whenever possible, instead of canceling. That said, we may have to make some changes, but we can’t wait to bring our community together again once it’s safe and appropriate. Here’s a quick status update on our future events!

Women & Non-Binary Bike Summit 

We are postponing the 7th Annual Women and Non-Binary Bike Summit presented by Dollar Bank, originally scheduled for April 25th.  Those who had already registered for the Summit have been issued refunds via Eventbrite. If you have questions about your registration refund, please contact us at info@bikepgh.org. We are currently working with our venues and instructors to find a new date for the Summit later in fall 2020, and will look forward to presenting the event at a better time of year when we can safely gather to learn and grow together.

OpenStreetsPGH 

We are also postponing the May edition of OpenStreetsPGH presented by UPMC Health Plan. We are hoping to find a time in September that works with the City and our many community partners. We now intend to launch our OpenStreetsPGH  season in June.

PedalPGH

We are hopeful that UPMC Health Plan PedalPGH can continue as scheduled in August 2020. PedalPGH isn’t just a fun bike ride. It’s an annual charity ride for BikePGH (that’s us!). We’re a registered 501(c)3 charitable nonprofit, who is transforming our streets to make biking and walking commonplace for all Pittsburghers in order to improve our quality of life and reduce the harmful effects of car dependence in our communities. 

Registration is open and you can sign up here! Without PedalPGH, we wouldn’t have the funds to do the important work we do to make Pittsburgh’s streets safe and accessible for bicyclists and pedestrians. 

Motor vehicles dominate our city streets every day, yet those of us who get around on foot or by bike has just as much of a right to our streets. That’s why we work year-round to make it possible for more Pittsburghers to get around safely without a car.

We will share updates on the status of this event as the months ahead become clearer, but for now, get registered, and we look forward to hosting you all for the 27th annual PedalPGH!

Looking forward 

We are Pittsburghers. We build stairs to connect our communities and bridges to connect our shores. We will find a way to stay connected. We will come out of this stronger, appreciating every handshake, every hug, every fist bump all the more once we’re able to stand within six feet of each other again. 

We would like to take a moment to thank the many, many, supporters who make it possible for BikePGH to continue our work at a time like this. Now more than ever, we know it is vital to make Pittsburgh a safer place to bike and walk, and that all Pittsburghers should be able to get around and access their basic needs without reliance on a motor vehicle. To our 3000+ members and donors, thank you for all that you do. We look forward to celebrating with you soon. If you are able, please renew your membership today to continue to support our work during this uncertain time.
