Secure Parking for Bikes in Pittsburgh

by Bike Shop Girl

When I think of the city Pittsburgh, I think of steel, the Steelers and Dirt Rag Magazine..  Slowly, with BikePGH‘s help, many are looking at Pittsburgh as a bike commuting city.

Pittsburgh Bike Center
Pittsburgh will soon offer a secure parking situation for commuters who cycle rather than drive into town.

The Bicycle Commuter Center has been built on the northern side of the Century Building in the Cultural District. The concept is simple: Two shipping containers have been converted into indoor bicycle storage with space for 26 bikes. The bikes in the facility will be safe from vandalism, theft, rain and snow–elements to which they may be vulnerable with on-street parking. Annual leases will begin April 1, and are available for $100, with a $10 key deposit. There are also 21 wall-racks and official BikePGH racks outside, available for free for short-term Cultural District parking.

    Just one more reason why I miss the Burgh!

  2. As an avid cycle commuter, i just thought i’d share a bit of news with you from over the pond. I’ve been commuting to school, work, etc for nearly 20 years and i’ve never come across any cycle gear as useful as the Michaud 24 panniers i picked up last month. basically, it’s a stylish briefcase/laptop bag, gym bag and weekend hold-all, all in one. I bought the pair but apparently you can buy them individually if you like, at half the cost! http://www.michaudapparel.com
