How-To Bike to Work

Friday morning you better be ready to ride, because May 20th is Bike to Work Day! We want to see more people than ever before riding to work, so Healthy Ride is FREE all day long, courtesy of our friends at Highmark. To help you get started, here’s a quick “how to” on biking to work. Enjoy!

Step one: Get a Bike.

Need one? We got youRegister beforehand at, via our mobile app “nextbike,” or call 412-535-5189. You’ll need to register with basic personal info AND a method of payment to complete registration.

Step two: Pick a route.

Use the interactive map on our website or the nextbike app to find a station near you. The app will even tell you bike-availability at every station. To find the best route, use the latest BikePGH map! Find it online at or grab a hard copy at your local bike shop.

Step three: Gear up.

You don’t need any fancy gear, just grab your briefcase and ride! We strongly encourage all of our riders to wear a helmet, so be sure you bring yours along. And if you’re worried about wearing sweaty clothes at work, bring a change of clothes with you. For cold or rainy weather tips, check out Bike Pgh’s Bike Commuting 101.

Step four: Caffeine Up.

Stop by one of BikePGH’s Commuter Cafe‘s for free coffee, giveaways, and good conversation. The Healthy Ride team will be there too. We hope to see you out there!

It’s that easy! So dust off your helmet, grab your briefcase, and #TakeHealthyRide.
