No, that’s not the number of items to complete on my personal bucket list (although, how awesome of a challenge would that be?). THAT is the basis of BikePGH’s goal of getting 2,012 members to sign up by 2012. Two months left… and less than 300 members to go.
I think a BikePGH membership will be a nice complement to my Venture Outdoors membership (which I intend to renew as well for the new year). The membership comes with some awesome local discounts as well as fun “extras,” so check out BikePGH for more info. Not only is this a benefit for YOU, but it also reinforces your support for maintaining the organization’s many goals and plans for local bike riders.
Keeping with talks of Bucket lists, my #31: Bike the Appalachian Trail — as well as our commitment to a single-car household, relying often on a bicycle as a second mode of transportation — somewhat coincides with BikePGH’s mission: to establish Pittsburgh as a city that is increasingly safe, accessible and friendly to bicycle transportation. All things considered, we’ll be doing lots of bike riding/training this year, and will also require special outfitted rentals for such a trip. All of which fall under the support, guidance and assistance of a bike-friendly community.
BONUS: some of you might be searching for a unique idea for that special Pittsburgh someone this holiday — there’s a GIFT FOR THAT!
