Riding to the top of Herron Hill in a thunderstorm was probably not the smartest thing I’ve ever done. To my credit, the lightning didn’t start untill I was almost to the top.
I’ll have to drop a tag tomorrow. No way I’m putting those wet clothes back on tonight
I went up Bryn Mawr… Cobbles were a little dicey when they were wet, so I used the sidewalk much of the way. I’d like to do it again on a clear day, during daylight.
I should warn yinz that I’ll be scouting the Dirty Dozen for the next month or two. Better start playing keep-away!

You must journey to top of the field of green where you can find the intersection of these two streets, one of which shares a name with an ancient kingdom of Anatolia, the other could be renamed to more accurately reflect its horizontal position in the neighborhood as the altitude here is only ~50 feet below the previous tag.
If (unlike me) you ride up there when it isn’t raining, you will have a nice view of the city.
I thought Dan’s written location description was great….
Thanks Sara! and nice climbing to the top of greenfield on that mountain bike bikefind!
people are dying to get in here, it’s near frickin perfect.
I will have missed the flock for this if I can’t catch them.
this is too much fun to watch happen. also: realizing that after living here 4 years, I haven’t been anywhere in the city.
I searched low and high but couldn’t catch a glympse of the flockers.
Given the orientation of the skyline I’d say somewhere on the Northside.
Figured out where it is. I’ll have to make a run for it later if it’s still there.
@peaceturkey – that’s how I figured it out too. 3d buildings & panoramio photos layers FTW.
This looks fun! I’m afraid a lack of technology will prohibit me from playing.
(Also, a lack of Pittsburgh knowledge. But, that can be helped easier than the technology problem. For example, I’ve never been to that first Greenfield one and I live here, so I’m now determined to find it!)
Cool, I knew you guys would figure that out, though I was expecting someone to use celestial navigation and draw a straight line through the sunset. I overlooked google earth. Incidentally, Quizbot got the right tree.
That’s a good one. Right there but just out of te way enough that most people miss it.
This is the first one I can’t figure out. Someone better go get it before cburch takes it to some unholy mud pit!
He was giving me crap today for not saving my tag for the bottom of Dr. J.
nevermind, I found it. I’m not going to go get it today though. I have dinner plans.
Remember. Frick is inside the city.
I have a few other tags in mind that won’t involve knobby tires.
I thought I knew where this was.
I hope I can reach the next tag before dark.
It’s tucked around the back of the big parking lot. Far north east corner.
This might shock you, but my bike is actually higher than quizbot’s. Closer to god than ewjme, and you don’t even have to get dirty to find it. Hallelujah! But beware of dog.
@quizbot – pipped indeed, but hats off for framing the skyline with your bike frame…
@pseudacris – thanks… I was just trying to keep my composure after being robbed
The new tag is vexing… is it at the top of a 2,000 lb cleaning instrument? Also thought it could be related to Aerosmith, but that doesn’t work either. Scouring google maps & street view for blue things on hilltops… can’t quite pin this one down.
Oops. The clue ought to have read “closer to god than bikefind.” Not to impugn ewjme’s sanctity, but it makes more sense this way.
The blue object is a water tower. I had hoped to get it all in the frame but that would have required standing in the yard of an apparently vicious dog. If the text doesn’t provide enough clues, I’ll post another photo. Careful attention to the gearing might help too.
