Celebrate summer by biking to the Farmers Market

Biking works up a pretty big appetite. So, while you’re taking a two-wheeled trip throughout Pittsburgh, make a pit stop at a Citiparks or neighborhood Farmers’ Market. Healthy Ride bikes are equipped with baskets to carry your fresh fruits, vegetables and baked goods. There’s no better way (I know, we’re a bit biased!) to experience a savory summer than to stop at one of our bike share stations and go grocery shopping outdoors.

Some farmer’s markets even offer a chance to stop and smell the roses, literally. And if you get thirsty, there’s plenty of water and freshly squeezed juices to fuel the rest of your ride.
