Pedal along the Allegheny River with kayaks, paddleboards in Millvale



New crafts have entered Pittsburgh rivers. If you can ride a bike, you can ride these — paddleboards and kayaks powered by pedals. 

The pedal board is a sort of a fusion of a bike, a StairMaster and an elliptical machine. Arturo Pineda advises customers to treat the pedal board just like a bike. 

Tres Rios Sports, at Millvale Riverfront Park, offers solo pedal kayaks and pedal boards ($26/hour) as well as traditional paddleboard rentals. There is one tandem pedal kayak available for $30 per hour. Hours are 10 a.m to 6 p.m Friday through Sunday. The business will be open through the end of August. Click for more information about Tres Rios Sports.

Hidden Pittsburgh

Discover 31 Cool and Unusual Things to Do in Pittsburgh



For example:  Canton Avenue, in the Beechview neighborhood of Pittsburgh, is the steepest street in the United States, with a maximum gradient of 37 percent. Though only one-tenth of a mile long, for every 100 feet there is a 37-foot elevation gain. (Although Baldwin Avenue in New Zealand is commonly cited as the world’s steepest street, its gradient is only 35%, but Baldwin’s gradient does continue for longer than Canton’s.)

Check out the interesting spots listed HERE. The next time you have out-of-town guests you can incorporate a few of them in your travels between the more typical places we all show off to visitors. Or you can plan a half-day "tour" for yourself.
