GAP / C&O Adventure: Fun in Pittsburgh

What a great couple of days we've had in Pittsburgh!

I think we were both surprised at how bike friendly this city is. We cycled everywhere we needed to go with the exception of taking a bus from the airport down to our hotel right near the Point.

Some of the highlights include:

  • Taking the incline up Mount Washington only to find Music on the Mount!
  • Riding down on the Duquesne Incline — be sure to stop in the museum...for 25 cents, you get to see the inner workings of incline.
  • Riding over multiple bridges.
  • Touring the Fort Pitt Museum — a good orientation to the areas you will be riding through, especially if you are also riding the C&O.
  • A very brief stop at the Warhol Museum on "free Sunday" — think 6 floors in 10 minutes!
  • Condado Tacos — loved the menu and super Celiac friendly!
  • Randyland — his message of positivity is not to be missed.
Beautiful night time view from the Incline.
Love the bike friendly bridges!
Tip: We loved, loved, loved the location of the Wyndham Hotel. BUT, the cleanliness factor was something else. If you do stay, check your room first and if it's not clean, have them give you a new room. Sigh.
