Seth Gernot - Pittsburgh, PA
My girlfriend and I rode bikes to our first date together. That date quickly turned into a serious relationship and a one day ride from Pittsburgh to Cleveland on a hybrid style tandem bike. 150 miles in a day and we're still together. From there we tackled the 12 steepest hills in Pittsburgh on the Saturday after Thanksgiving at the Dirty Dozen. This ride includes Canton Ave, the steepest hill in the world at 37%. We set the record as the first co-ed tandem to complete this grueling 50 mile ride in the snow.
We love our tandem and the way it makes people smile when we ride by.
We're now scheming to ride the 335 miles from Pittsburgh to Washington DC on the Great Allegheny Passage and C & O Canal Towpath in 24 hours to raise money for a charity and bring attention to the fact that bikes are awesome.
Here's a photo of us climbing Canton Ave....oh, it's also paved with cobblestones....oh ya!blog comments powered by Disqus
