Ten days of BikeFest annually, 100 donated bike racks, a map of the city now in its third edition and a ranking as one of the best cities for bikers. Pittsburgh owes these two-wheeled statistics to the efforts of BikePGH and its co-founder and CEO, Scott Bricker. From advocating for bike commuters to renting bikes to tourists, his work helps cyclists enjoy a smoother ride. “[We are] giving a voice to this community and … have begun transforming the city into a more livable, bike-friendly place,” he says. “If I can make local leaders think of our streets as places meant for moving people, not just cars, I will have succeeded.”
