does anyone in Pittsburgh ride a bike? I'll be in town for a week long conference in March, and would like to ride a little while I'm there. Does anyone actually ride a bike in PA, and if so, are there any shops that rent out road bikes? This would be near Dusquesne University and I won't likely have a car.
thanks for the help

The closest bike shop to Duquesne University I believe is
Golden Triangle Bike and Blade
Bike Shop Bike Rentals 412-600-0675
They do rent bikes but I don't have any experience with renting.
The bike Pittsburgh web site is ... http://bike-pgh.org/
There is a bike map that you can download or view on-line. The 'Burgh does have one or two hills that I'm sure will prove interesting.

I've never rented from Golden Triangle, but I have stopped to get a drink and a power bar there before and the staff seemed friendly. They're not open year round, though, and I believe they have more of hybrids and some mountain bikes.
You said you were looking for a road bike - what kind of quality are you looking for? Also, what size? I don't know if there are any rental places around, but I might be able to point you in the direction of someone who can...

Of course we ride bikes here! :) Our hills aren't that big. :)
Golden Triangle does not rent road bikes that I am aware. I know of no place in Pittsburgh that does,
What size frame do you need? You are welcome to use my Trek FX (I'll ride my road bike :) ), if it fits and I have the day off. It is a 22.5" frame.
Email Tom, directly. He could probably hook you up. (http://www.goldentrianglebikenblade.com/)
