Join the ARRIVISTE Coffee Bar crew for a group bike ride as part of BikePGH's annual BikeFest! We'll start from the shop in Shadyside, ride up to Riverview Park on Observatory Hill, down to the Mexican War Streets, across the river into Lawrenceville, then back up to Shadyside via Allegeheny Cemetery.We're keeping the ride to the first 15 sign-ups so we can manage the group. Free drip coffee at ARRIVISTE pre- and post-ride for all particpants. 20% discount on all other drinks and pastries. Meet up at the shop by 8am and we'll get rolling 8:30 at the latest.
This will be a social, no-drop group ride. It won't be a hammerfest but it won't be a leisurely roll either. Class "C" ride, Zone 2/3, sub-threshold, Zwift class "E", etc., pick your descriptor. We'll go 15-18mph together on the flats, go up hills as fast as you care to, and regroup at the top. If you're a pretty serious rider, treat this like a real recovery day. If you only break your bike out for picinics in the park, this ride might not be for you. Please come with the mindset of getting to know some new people and having a nice time exploring some good urban cycling routes. No Strav-a**holes! If it's raining really hard, we'll reschedule the ride.
All bikes welcome but please have brakes and no fixies. Helmets are MANDATORY. It would be great if you brought your lights, too. The group will obey all traffic lights, stop signs, and other traffic laws. The ride is self-supported so bring your own snacks, hydration, and repair equipment. We may stop for a coffee break in the Mexican War Streets if the group abides. This is the approximate route:https://www.strava.com/activities/1095064723 DISCLAIMER: This is a free, unsanctioned, voluntary ride.
