Pittsburgh can seem like a daunting place to ride a bicycle for a new cyclist or a newcomer to the city. But it doesn’t have to be. That is the philosophy behind the online Pittsburgh Bike Maps. Pittsburgh’s beauty, in many ways, stems from it’s lack of a traditional street-grid pattern, rivers, and the many hills - three elements that also make riding in the city challenging at times, especially since these geographic components provide most of the neighborhood connections. These maps are designed with the commuter and urban explorer in mind, in hope that folks can learn the easiest and safest routes to traverse and explore some new territory.
The maps identify the best routes for cycling and connecting neighborhoods, the car-free trails, as well as the less-than-ideal, yet unavoidable stretches of road as “Cautionary Bike Routes.” They also have a separate safe cycling section so riders can familiarize themselves on how to stay safe while riding a bike in Pittsburgh.
In addition to all of the information on the print map, the online version contains information about crossing bridges, an expanded notes and landmarks section, the opportunity to view the routes in terrain and satellite mode, and user-submitted crash information.
