PedalPGH goes virtual!

Ride with us virtually at the 27th annual UPMC Health Plan PedalPGH

PedalPGH is still on!  With health and safety front of mind, BikePGH is shifting its flagship fundraiser, UPMC Health Plan PedalPGH, to become a “virtual” ride.

The team at BikePGH has been working hard to create a new event experience that will allow riders to safely experience our beautiful city while keeping safely distanced from other participants.

What can you expect in 2020? Sweet swag, new routes, free ice cream & more! Ride one of four routes anytime during our PedalPGH celebration weekend between Thursday, August 27 and Sunday, August 30th.

We have four fun new routes for 2020!

These fresh courses will help to spread fellow riders across the city over the four days during the PedalPGH celebration weekend (August 27, 28, 29, & 30th) and aid in social distancing. Ranging between 6 and 40 miles route options feature:

  • 6 Mile – Peoples Local Loop
  • 15 Mile – BikePGH Parks Tour
  • 25 Mile – Aurora City Tour
  • 40 Mile – Uber Ultimate Challenge 

As in the past, colorful wayfinding signs will be up along the routes to guide you on your way (plus we will have Ride With GPS routes, TCX & GPX route files, and printed Cue sheets)! Or, participants can go truly virtual on an indoor trainer. We want the focus for this year to be simple – just #PedalPGH!

    Safety is important, especially when inexperienced, young, and elderly riders are on city streets. Aren’t you concerned about the safety of participants, since the “safety in numbers” aspect of the event will be lost? And why aren’t you reducing the cost of the event, commensurate with your savings on aid stations etc.? You are providing much less value, especially in safety. You should reduce your prices, and warn of the dangers.
