So, my wife and I (new to PGH in November) have been commuting by bike (although perhaps not when it’s as cold as it’s been lately), going between Squirrel Hill (home), Oakland and Shadyside.
We’ve Found good routes for those basics, but now my wife needs to get up from Oakland to a meeting at Children’s Hospital. Any suggestions for good routes to cover that trip and then home to Squirrel Hill?
Thanks for the feedback – bike-pgh has been an invaluable resource….
Thanks all. Wife decided on the shuttle bus (she’s got the badge thing), but this is good information for the future. Definitely worth checking out the Liberty bike lanes.
For what it’s worth, we’re in central squirrel hill just a couple of blocks off of beechwood at the park. I personally go to shadyside and have been going shady->walnut->aiken->centre, but I might consider morewood ->cmu->schenley. Don’t know if it’s backtracking or not, but it might be nice for a change of scenery…
