Rider Profile: Nikki R.

Healthy Ride is creating a series of rider profiles to feature some of our riders and showcase how they use the system. If you would like to be featured, please fill out our survey.

How long have you lived in Pittsburgh?

All my life.

If this is your hometown, what’s your fondest memory about growing up in Pittsburgh? Did you bike as a child, and do you have any biking memories?

Too many memories to pick just one. Because of a childhood illness I didn’t learn to ride a bike until I was 10 yrs old. When I did I LOVED IT. I would ride my bike for hours around my neighborhood everyday of the summer!

How long have you used the bike share program, and how do you use the bikes? (i.e. you bike to work, school, church)

2 summers. I only use them to go on group rides.

What year did you start biking?

2018 but I don’t consider myself a biker.

What are your favorite places to bike in Pittsburgh, and why?

I’m usually on group rides with Trey McCune or Lavette Wagner. They have adventurous and somewhat challenging rides. They are awesome instructors!

Complete the following sentence. I love Healthy Ride’s bike share program, because…

It provides biking experiences for people that don’t own bikes such as myself!
