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.
New for this year: We may ask for a $5 voluntary donation for the Community Human Services food pantry (www.chscorp.org
A baseline route is here: http://ridewithgps.com/routes/6623296
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.
Thanks to REI for providing warm beverages at the start again.
Icycle Bicycle is now a WPW club tradition spanning decades.
Hofbräuhaus has been good for lunch in recent years, so let’s do that again.
