DETAILS

The World Affairs Council of Pittsburgh turns 90 years old on October 9! We're celebrating with another community bike ride – and you're invited! We'll be riding on the GAP trail from Hot Metal Bridge to McKeesport, heading out at 10:00AM and ending at 1:00PM. Our meeting point will be the Three Rivers Heritage Trail Parking Lot. We’ll be riding rain or shine! We’ll provide free Council t-shirts and ponchos to make sure we stay dry. We’ll only cancel in the case of extreme weather, so keep an eye out for email and social media updates for any changes. We invite you to get outside and connect with the world at your feet by meeting other globally-minded Pittsburghers as we commemorate our 90 years. Thank you to our sponsors UPMC, UPMC Health Plan, Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield, and Jones Day. We are proud to partner with Healthy Ride, PUMP, and the YMCA of Greater Pittsburgh for the final ride of our 90 for 90 campaign. Please choose a ticket indicating your experience and comfort level on a bike. DIRECTIONS: We will be starting and ending at Three Rivers Heritage Trail Parking Lot: https://tinyurl.com/WACridemap Free parking is available. The Google Maps pin will take you to the South Side Public Boat Launch parking lot. When you arrive at the pin, keep driving past it all the way to the end of the road. There, you’ll find a cul-de-sac with parking and port-a-johns. We’ll get on the trail directly from there! When you pull into the lot, keep an eye out for Council team members in bright blue t-shirts to guide you. For more detailed directions: If you’re coming from the South Side, follow 18th Street all the way to the very end to the parking lot entrance. You’ll drive past the South Side Dog Park and Public Boat Launch parking lot and underneath the Birmingham Bridge. Continue driving until you reach the end of the road.
