Cycle to the Strip District

Since 2009, BikePGH?s Car Free Fridays has been challenging commuters to find alternative transportation options, focusing on one neighborhood or municipality every month. Just a bike ride or walk away from SCC, Lawrenceville will be highlighted during the month of October.? To coincide with Bike PGH’s Lawrenceville feature, SCC is hosting a Bike meet-up at our main gallery space on October 23, from 12 – 4 pm. Representatives by Bike PGH and Dirt Rag magazine will be present to chat with visitors about their programs, products, and cycling in Western PA. Fiber artist Casey DrogeThe Store. will be in the gallery demonstrating the creation of her amazing, handmade bike accessories, available for sale along with a wealth of other bike-related craft items in The Store.
