My name is Angela Le (they/them/theirs) and I am a current undergraduate at the University of Pittsburgh studying ecology & evolution, and linguistics. I am a first-generation Vietnamese-American and I love to share food from my culture with anyone! I love picnicking, making earrings, music, and (obviously) biking!
I’ve lived in Pittsburgh all my life, growing up in the South Hills.
I learned how to ride a bike when I was 7 with my older sister- I remembered she did the trick where she convinced me she was still holding onto the bike when I was riding for the first time.
I’ve only been using bike share program since October of 2020, as with COVID-19 I was trying to find alternatives in same public transportation. I tend to use the bike for an assortment of things: recreational, work, groceries, errands (it is very versatile!!).
Some of my favorite places to bike is from Oakland to Bloomfield, East Liberty, Lawrenceville, and the South Side. They are fun because the routes show you a great diversity of different parts of Pittsburgh!
I love Healthy Ride’s bike share program because it is an accessible and convenient way of transportation and improving mental health 🙂
