Priory is designated as "Bronze" Bicycle Friendly Business

Priory Hospitality Group is pleased and proud to be recognized recently as a "Bronze" "Bike Friendly Business" by the League of American Cyclists, a national organization based in Washington, DC dedicated to advocating for bicycle ridership and safety.  We won this award based upon our installing bicycle securing facilities, such as racks and bike shelters, on our hotel property.  We also invested in bike maps, and bike repair equipment for our guests.  For our staff, we created a changing area and shower for associates who would like to bicycle in to work in the morning.  This recognition comes on the heels of being recognized by Bike Pittsburgh as a "Bike Friendly Business."  The Priory Hotel is the only hotel in the Pittsburgh region recognized as "Bike Friendly" by these two organizations.

Pittsburgh is host to an array of bicycling amenities, including many nearby bike trails, including the beautiful North Shore Trail on the Allegheny River, running by PNC Park and the Rivers Casino.  Pittsburgh is also a launch point for the Great Allegheny Passage, heading through the Appalachian mountains, along the C & O Canal, and into Washington, D.C.  We welcome guests with bicycles here at the Priory, and if you are interested in choosing Pittsburgh as a stop on your bicycling vacation, we would be delighted to host you.
