What is Bike Fest?

Bike Fest 2006, a project of Pittsburgh’s only cycling advocacy organization, Bike Pittsburgh, came to light when we were trying to figure out what kind of event could highlight what it is that we do, and who it is that we are, and be fun at the same time. So last year, we took a successful organizing model ala Bike Summer, and introduced it to Pittsburgh, a city with a burgeoning bicycle scene. We figure that we can show off Pittsburgh’s inherent uniqueness, promote safe bicycling in all of its glory, and celebrate our bicycle culture in one foul swoop. Last year's Fest was such a success, we decided to do it again!

This years Festival, June 23 thru July 4, will include several events each day, comprising of everything from themed rides, to movies, to races and lectures. The calendar of events is open to anyone who has the desire to organize an event, and relate it to the bicycle in some fashion. The only limit is the organizers creativity. Bike Pittsburgh is acting as the “hub” to promote the events, as well as providing the framework and resources for the organizers. The scheduled list of events will eventually be on our website: www.bike-pgh.org. A print version of the calendar will be available closer to the date, since events are continuously being organized. To post an event, or if you have questions, comments, or advise direct them to bikefest@bike-pgh.org or call 412-726-5872. Thank You.

If you want to see the calendar from last year's Bike Fest, check out the Bike Pittsburgh website, www.bike-pgh.org where we have archived the calendar as well as a bunch of photos from the event.
