Safety is our highest priority on ride weekend. All riders should review and familiarize themselves with all of the event safety rules to help us keep everyone safe on the road.


We recommend that you choose a parking location on the North Shore so that you're close to the start and finish lines. You can use ParkPGH to see which lots have availability on ride weekend. Please note that most parking garage entrances do NOT have the clearance to accommodate bicycles mounted on roof racks, so please plan accordingly!
