Bike Pittsburgh

Hello from Pittsburgh!


It was supposed to be super gross and rainy out all day today, but we got lucky! Apparently Matt and I brought the sun with us from NC :)


Matt, his parents, and I all headed into the city today to explore by bike! There are trails stretching along the river on both sides — so nice!




Matt’s parents brought their own bikes and Matt and I rented some at a place along the river.


We got mountain/hybrid bikes and it felt really weird to ride so upright again after getting used to our road bikes!


Hamming it up:



It was a really pretty ride! I especially loved all the bridges :)

Halfway through the ride (we were out for about 3 hours), we stopped for a picnic lunch feast!

It made it up into the high 60’s today — perfect biking and picnic weather :)


Isn’t this mural we saw along our ride cool?


I loved this old building, too.


We just got back from a delicious dinner out and now it’s time to relax! Hope you’re enjoying your weekends :)

    Looks like a perfect day, indeed. But I’m sure you wish you’d been able to rent road bikes! Love your new bike shirt, by the way! Happy Easter –

      They had road bikes, but they were more expensive and since we were just out for a casual ride we decided comfy bikes would be more fun :)

    That looks like so much fun. I would love to explore a city by bike. It looks like you had beautiful weather :)

    That looks like a great way to see a city. I am in the market for a road bike right now! There are some days where I just WANT to ride a bike so badly. I love mimi-Larabars. They are the perfect size when you do not need a 200 cal commitment.

    what a great day! I wish my family was more active like this!

    Your picnic is too cute! So much scenery going on during your biking! What better way is there to see a city?

    Compared to the forecase this weekend was definitely a win here in Pittsburgh. Which restaurant did you have dinner at?
