Let’s Ride and Make the World a Better Place
posted on September 21, 2020
The week for our bike ride is upon us!
As you have probably seen we are hosting a bike ride fundraiser. We are excited as this is something new to Union Fitness. The ride is called “Bike Ride for Black Lives.” All funds raised will be donated to the Urban League of Greater Pittsburgh.
What are the ride options?
We are hosting a 10, 30 and 50 mile ride.
What are the routes?
We will have maps available the day of the ride.
The ten mile ride will leave Nova Place, ride to the Northside trail and follow the trail beside the Allegheny River and back to Nova Place.
The thirty mile ride will cross into town, then catch the Great Allegheny Passage and ride up past the waterfront and back (it will end at about Kennywood).
The fifty miler will follow a similar route to the thirty except follow the GAP past Mckeesport.
How do I register?
Click here and scroll down to Saturday. The ride is listed as one of our “classes.” This “class” is free to anyone (member or non-member of UF).
How do I donate?
All donations are taking place through our go fund me page, click here for that site.
What time does the ride start?
10 mile family fun ride. This ride will leave UF at 10:30 AM with registration at 10 AM.
30 Mile Challenge. This ride will leave UF at 9:30 with registration at 9 AM.
50 Mile Challenge. This ride will leave UF at 8:30 with registration at 8 AM.
Will there be rest stops?
For the 30 and 50 mile rides we will have a support crew at the waterfront. They will have water, gatorade and snacks.
