Pittsburgh looked pretty healthy on Sunday. We had a group of 32 riding together and saw a lot of others out there. The sound of 32 feet clicking in at the same time is pretty sweet. As far as the hills, you forget that Pittsburgh has a lot of great down hills too.Most likely, those preparing the report survey only outside of coffee houses on weekend mornings.
Well said as always, Pittsburgh Guy. But I wonder, is it the One-Legged Riding Club of which you speak? (32 riders, 32 feet?!) Reminds me of the sweet sound of one hand clapping.And off topic, but, good job at the Chatham polls!
most people only click in and out of one foot when they ride. i like how one of our challenges is "Fewer golf courses per capita"also, i was surprised that a low amount of parkland was a challenge. i thought we had a large amount of park space. must be the burbs dragging us down.
Interesting that it's community fitness, as distinct from individual fitness. Do the county parks maintain any kind of trend data on guestimated use? In the mid-90s when I would return for a visit and go running in South Park, it seemed like I was the only one under 50 there. Nowadays it seems much more active with people of all ages. 16th is actually pretty good when you consider our aging population. Are our boomers more fit than their counterparts elsewhere? There's a diaspora fitness contest in there somewhere (all roads/comments lead out to the diaspora).
You know I've been meaning to pop you a note. or blog this. But I was biking on the Mon Yough trail a couple weeks ago and I swear for like a half hour period all the bikers I passed were elderly. Like everyone. Not a group of any kind either. Nothing wrong with that, but it means there were also few young people as well. And I mean young in a Pittsburgh sense which covers everyone under say 50. It was weird. So maybe you are on to something. ok, the period has begun.
