Biking around Pittsburgh has never been easier (or more fun) than it is today; and it's not just Pittsburghers who know it. One blogger on StreetFilms.org put together a montage of Pittsburgh's bridges via bicycle. "It's no secret that Pittsburgh is a great city of bridges. And while they may currently lack a comprehensive on-road network for bikes, pedestrians and bicyclists do have ample space and comfortable access to just about all their bridges."
"Last time I visited in 2010
, I fell in love with the elegance of the Hot Metal Bridge
, which crosses the Monongahela River and provides an intergral link in the Great Allegheny Passage
which connects all the way to D.C. One evening, I spent over an hour soaking in the atmosphere and the observing the people using it. It's peaceful, clean, and has great views. I'd put it amongst my Top Five U.S. bike bridges."
