(Season runs May through October)
Roll with our friendly pack of riders as we enter the 2019 cycling season. Cycling with Silver Cycles is a fun way to socialize while staying in shape and burning off a few extra calories you may have gained over the winter months.
There are a lot of benefits to riding with a pack. Fellow riders can give you tips on equipment and cycling skillfulness. Exploring new routes with friends can take the mundanity out of your trips and pack adventure into the ordinary ride. Having a schedule to stick to gives you structure in workouts and friends can motivate you to stay with it!
Health benefits include:
- Enhanced muscle strength and flexibility
- Stress reduction
- Increased energy levels
- Improved cardiovascular fitness
- Loss of body fat
- Quality social engagement

Other cycling events will include Open Streets Pittsburgh and Pedal Pittsburgh.
