January 1 @ 10:45 am – 1:00 pm
The Western PA Wheelmen’s annual New Year’s Day ride. We start in Southside Works near REI. All are welcome.
Meet at South Side Works near REI nominally at 10:45 AM, with the ride leaving at 11 AM. Please arrive early.
Exact route and distance depends on weather conditions.
Continuing recent tradition, we’ll collect a $5 voluntary donation for the Community Human Services food pantry (www.chscorp.org/)
A baseline route is here:
From South Side Works ride to the Western End Bridge, then through the North Shore area to the 31th Street Bridge. Then along Penn to the end, when we cross over to Boulevard of the Allies. Ride on roads relatively free of cars during the holiday.
Roads will likely be safer than trails in icy conditions, but we will play it by ear. Use common sense.
Helmets required to ride and all riders please sign in for insurance purposes when you arrive. An event of the Western Pennsylvania Wheelmen (WPW). All are welcome. Even you. Really.
Icycle Bicycle is a WPW club tradition spanning decades.
