Flock of Cycles
For the past year, I've been working with a group of amazing people. We met because of bicycles, and through this common interest we created a nonprofit organization that aims to make bike riding in Pittsburgh both safe and fun. We recently secured a seed grant to support our flagship project, a monthly party ride. We meet after work on the second to the last Friday of every month, fire up some bicycle-mounted stereos, and slowly roll around town in the most law-abiding (important!) manner for two or three hours. It is incredibly fun, social, and generates cheers from the sidewalk audience and automobile drivers. Flock of Cycles also has the honor to be one of this year's "worthy causes" for the annual East End Brewing Pedal Pale Ale Keg Ride. If you have a bike in Pittsburgh, you should be there!
