The coolest thing to happened in Pittsburgh in a while... OPEN STREETS

July 31st, 2016: Maddie goes from full on hating bikes and everything they represent to considering buying one.  

Thank you OPEN STREETS PITTSBURGH

I didn't some event to occur to reaffirm my love of this city.... but of course it happened anyways.

It is not every day (in fact, it only happens three times a year) that the city of Pittsburgh closes off some of its major streets in bridges so yinzers can do.... whatever they like!

Drum lines, zumba, yoga, giant pong, CPR training, and jugglers were only a few of the fantastical things I saw happening in the streets of Pittsburgh yesterday.

Open streets mission is pretty cool I guess....  healthy living, shopping and eating, re-imagining city spaces, and thinking green.  I mean, if you're into that sort of thing.... 

I cannot rave enough about this event.  I am majorly bummed that it will be an entire year before it happens again.

See if your city has a ciclovia event coming soon! 

HAPPY GALLIVANTING
