This is edition #2 of our comic-book style guide to urban biking. Since 2007, over 50,000 copies of this guide have helped people learn the tricks, tips, suggestions, and laws to stay safe, comfortable, and legal while biking.

All the information is laid out in an approachable style that gives you enough to grasp the concepts, but not too much to scare you away.  The best part is: it’s absolutely free.  Grab a copy at any of the bike shops in town, or feel free to stop by our office.  Be green and skim through the online version. If you have any questions, there’s sure to be a helpful biker on our message board to give you some advice.

We are proud to present the updated Spanish Language bike guide, “BICI-101”.  This free, condensed guide is a “Welcome” to the Spanish-speaking Latino and Hispanic Community in Pittsburgh, and includes basic information regarding safety and some of the bike services available to the community.

This project was created by Spanish-speaking members in Pittsburgh and 412 Flock, and made possible with support from Free Ride, Café Con Leche, and BikePGH.

Besides Spanish, a Portuguese version is in the works -coming soon!
