Why did Homewood Concerned Citizens Council apply to become a Healthy Ride Community Ambassador this year?

HCCC applied to become a Community Ambassador of Healthy Ride because of our engagement with the community and our working relationship with Bike Pittsburgh in the last two years. Participated and volunteer in the East End Bike Ride.


What are you most excited about for this year’s Ambassador program?

Being accessible to our community as Ambassadors. Bringing greater awareness to Healthy Ride and promoting its place in the community.


Where is your favorite place to bike to in or around Homewood?

From Homewood to Highland Park, Homewood to East Liberty and learning other destinations that will become adaptable to seniors and other residents.


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

The program can serve as a value added to the transportation system. Riders can very easily go outside of the neighborhood for shopping; park bicycles and continue with their connect card to return home with bags in tow on the bus if needed.


Any improvements you’d like to see in order to make Pittsburgh or Homewood a better place for people to bike?

Cycling 101 training for cycling knowledge and safety.
