The event is organized by Bike Pittsburgh.
OpenStreetsPGH temporarily closes roads to car traffic, and invites Pittsburghers to reimagine our streets as places for people. Walk, run, bike, skate, roll, dance, and enjoy the road at your own pace! Participants can jump into a free fitness class at our wellness hub, learn how to ride, drift or tackle a jumps course at our kids hub, enjoy food from local vendors, and play in the streets with activities hosted by over 50 local organizations.
