OpenStreetsPGH is inspired by the open streets movement – a global phenomenon promoting healthy outdoor activity and community engagement using city streets. OpenStreetPGH temporarily closes streets to car traffic and invites Pittsburghers to reimagine their streets as places for people. This free event series connects communities to each other and creates a safe place for people of all ages to walk, bike, roll, and dance through 10 neighborhoods in 2019.
6:30pm – 9:30pm
Free Ride Bicycle Collective is Pittsburgh’s DIY bicycle collective located in Point Breeze, dedicated to recycling bicycles, mechanical bicycle education, and promoting bicycle use. Every Wednesday, they have open shop hours for women and LGBTQIA+ folx.
Every fourth Wednesday, January-November
8:00am – 9:00am
This program encourages conversation and spaces to come together over biking, advocacy and related topics while increasing representation of people who have historically marginalized gender identities.
