I noticed a lot more bikes out today. I spoke with one lady at the Oakland/Pitt coffee stop about riding. She said she doesn’t usually ride, but did today. She mentioned how easy it was and wondered why more people don’t do it.

I got one of my coworkers to ride to work. I don’t think she has been on her bike since I moved to PGH. So good deal there. She said she enjoyed it and said she will be biking more often now. The commuter guide they were handing out at the coffee stop was a big hit.

I also roped another person into coming to FOC, who otherwise hasn’t biked in PGH that much.

Fantastic first Car Free Friday. Thanks for all your hard work Erok, Scott, Lou, et al.

It’s too bad it’s not safer, less terrifying to ride your bike to work, people do it and when they’re able to do it confidentiality and safely they’re amazed how fast and fun it is. I mean if nobody yells at you or “accidentally” almost hits you while taking a phone call.

I didn’t notice a huge amount of extra bikes on the road but It did seem drivers gave me a little more courtesey, another great day for bicycling.

I stopped by REI at around 8:30. Hung around and talked with a few people.

It was a great event!

@reddan Hershinger is a wonderful alternative to FedEx hill, absolutely no traffic, nice & easy grade.

For anyone else going this way, it runs off of Montour Run Road one traffic light down from FedEx; same light as going up into K-Mart.

FedEx itself has FOUR bikes in the rack today, including mine, the most I’ve ever seen there.
