Rider Profile: Tara M.

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?

11 years.

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

I’ve used it since it started! I mostly use it for recreational biking and events like Open Streets and The Underwear Bike Rides! I haven’t owned my own bike since I was a kid, so it’s super useful.

What year did you start biking?

I would guess 1996, with training wheels.

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

I love biking on the trails and through the Strip! One of the things I love about Pittsburgh is you can see so much of the City from a bike in a relatively short amount of time.

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

It has connected me to such a great community of Pittsburgh cyclists!
