Ok, it looks like there are 5 of these tiles in pittsburgh.

TeamDecafWeekend: any hints as which tile you have a pic of?

There are several in town, RubberFactory’s isn’t the same one as mine, no offense, just sayin’.

Here’s another – not the same, not the tag.

There may be 5 tiles, but mine is 6th.

Hmmm, I gotta go drop the truck off to be inspected, then I’ll be off and hunting.

Is this tile in the traffic lane? Am I going to get run over if I hang out to long?

Post number 2000!

Huh, I would have posted the same shot as RF. I don’t know where the others are.

It’s in the right lane, which is protected by parked cars most of the time.

Amazing, the website that listed the locations of all these things first popped up on archive.org in 2003, and listed six of them in Pittsburgh (one cross street has two?). It appears that they were placed long before then. How in the world can bike lanes last less than 12 months, and these things have been on the road for more than a decade? :)

I’ve been wondering how they last so long too – it is amazing.

After reading about them, when the city plans to repave the locations of these, someone should definitely saw cut these things out.

Had lunch with mom, she suggested this spot. I thought it was pretty cool.

Hint: the tag did not move very far.

I think it would be cool to check this out at night. The lights dance an move with the sound of cars and trucks.

I think this was put up for the G20 summit.

Mine was in the crosswalk between CVS and 7-11

was all ready to go to sleep, but then I saw the tag, so I had to grab it. I’m glad I did, too, it’s a beautiful night, and now I’m awake and energized!

just 4 blocks down from my apartment, the beautiful and stylish bike-pgh office, complete with knit bike rack cozies :)

34-6=28 minutes between tags? That’s gotta be a record!


Erica

haha, It takes me about 3 minutes to ride to the office, and it took about 15 for me to do the walk/ride back uphill. It was exciting! I need to go on more night rides that aren’t to work.

EDIT: 15 can’t be right for climbing 4 blocks. Either way, it was an awesome ride.
