I sent an email to the administrator of Bike The Burgh Tours asking if the tour was difficult. She assured me that I could do it. If you can ride a bike, you can do this tour.
If you are looking for a unique way to REALLY see what Pittsburgh is all about, Check out Bike The Burgh Tours! Fun for young and old alike!!
Pittsburgh is a beautiful town, a town I don't know a whole lot about. I was very excited to learn a little bit more about it.
Our first Bike The Burgh Tour was, Bridges In The Burgh. Did you know Pittsburgh is bursting with bridges? There are 400 bridges in Pittsburgh!! Crazy!! Who would have thought!
|Meet Val, owner of Bike The Burgh Tours|
After the seat was repaired, Val told us some history of the Hot Metal Bridge we were standing on. Then off we went to the next destination. By the way, Val slows down or speeds up to make sure everyone can keep up with her. That was a good thing for us since we are kind of out of shape when it comes to riding bikes.
I am not going to spoil the tour for those of you that haven't done this yet. I will say, I got to see how beautiful Pittsburgh is. We learned so much about the Bridges Of Pittsburgh, plus we got to see so many other points of interest. And.... we got some really good exercise along the way.
Here is something to let you know how kind Val is. When she found out we were riding our bikes to the casino after the tour to meet my Hubs, she made sure she told us she would bike us there so we wouldn't get lost. Good thing too!! I would have been still riding my bike around Pittsburgh looking for the Rivers Casino.
Thank you so much Val!! What a kind, good person you are.
My younger sister wants to go on a Bike The Burgh Tour with me next. We just have to figure out our schedules. I would like to do one of the weekend tours.
