Bike Hazelwood

  • Elizabeth Street Parklet 5011 Roma Way Pittsburgh, PA 15207 (map)

On July 13th, join Greater Hazelwood in a bicycle celebration!

The opening of the trail on Hazelwood Green creates safe pedestrian and cycling connections to the Eliza Furnace Trail, and the rest of Pittsburgh. Hazelwood Initiative is leading the charge to celebrate as a neighborhood this new accessibility in and out of Greater Hazelwood by promoting cycling as an effective form of transportation, while also providing educational programs for residents to learn how to safely navigate the city’s streets by bicycle.

This is a family-oriented public event, with all ages welcome. Activities will include:

  • Pre-event: Hazelwood resident bike raffle on June 30th. If you are a Greater Hazelwood resident interested in the bike raffle, please get in touch with Hazelwood Initiative.

  • Bike safety education, learn about about hand signals, ‘taking the lane,’ and other techniques for navigating the city streets and local trails.

  • A learn-to-ride obstacle course for kids to develop their skills at navigating the trails, streets, and potholes!

  • Learn about basic bike maintenance and on-the trail repairs.

  • Learn about the regional trail network before continuing on a ride to the South Side, Downtown, or Oakland.

  • Learn about trail stewardship and advocacy work.
