The rain held off until the afternoon on Bike to Work Day — May 17 — and exited before most people would have been heading home.
Dozens of cyclists rode into Schenley Plaza, where a pop-up Commuter Café from 7 to 10 a.m. featured information from Pitt’s Parking, Transportation and Services and police department, Staff Council and representatives from the Bike Cave. Additionally, BikePGH, Healthy Ride, UPMC and PennDOT were on hand with resources and information for riders.
Aurora Sharrard, director of the University Office of Sustainability, told @Pitt that Pittsburgh’s commuter biking population has doubled since 2009.
