Car-free Fridays launched

Bike Pittsburgh is leading an initiative to encourage drivers to leave their cars parked at home one day a week.

A Car-Free Fridays kick-off event is set for 8-10 a.m. Friday at Schenley Plaza. Free breakfast is available for those arriving on foot or by bike or bus. The kick-off event also features speakers and includes free bike safety checks as well as the opportunity for participants to pick up vouchers for discounts good at participating businesses.

Information on other Car-Free Fridays events and a map of bike pool meeting spots and destinations for cyclists who would like to commute in a group is available at
