Pedal Across Wisconsin Participants tested our high visibility 3M reflective jerseys while riding 70 miles a day through the country roads. The week long tour had a few hills with endless sky that surround lush, green landscape. Wisconsin has lots of lakes and water to make the area rich with vitality and growth. The cows and goats thrive in the expansive pastures. It is true, the cows are happy in Wisconsin.

Chris works hard to answer your questions and get your orders shipped on time. He is a bicycle commuter, braving the crazy Pittsburgh drivers on his way to work. He also rode his bike across the country - from Pennsylvania to Washington state.
He said that bicycle touring is a beautiful extension of cycling that allows you to combine travel, exploration, and the thrill of new experiences and challenges with the joys of riding that you already enjoy. With proper planning, touring can be a refreshing new way to see the world, a more engaging way to travel from one place to another, and a great way to spend a vacation. Read Chris's blog post about what he learned while bicycle touring across the country.

Our founder, Cathy Schnaubelt Rogers fell in love with cycling at age 12, where she attended a girl scout camp with her spider bike. From this humble beginning, she has ridden all over the world. Cathy has bicycle toured self contained with panniers across the United States riding from Tampa, Florida up the east coast to Cape Cod Massachusetts. She also has bicycle toured through eight European countries. The most she ever rode in one day is 140 miles! Cathy is an avid cyclist. She is a former USCF licensed bike racer, who cycled for the University of South Florida in many sanctioned races. In addition, she was a competitive triathlete.
Cathy continues to ride in bicycle tours and organized bicycle events. Ms. Rogers describes her fascination with the bicycle as a form of neurosis or disease that she can't shake off. She collects bike art and describes her home as a shrine to the bicycle. She says: "Riding my bicycle makes me happy" which is the essence of her love affair with the bicycle.
Check out Cathy's Big Ride Across America Blog she is the first woman to ride an electric bicycle across the United States.

Our Work to support development of Bicycle Culture: We sponsor our local volunteer bicycle organizations. We are supporting the Ohio River Trail Council to bring a bike trail through downtown Coraopolis that will connect the city of Pittsburgh to the Ohio River area. Another big sponsorship that we support is the yearly Pittsburgh Cycling Expo which is held in the city each Spring. The Pittsburgh Cycling expo is a benefit for the Montour Trail to create visibility and membership for the trail maintenance and infrastructure. We invite all the local trail organizations and local merchants and present about 70 vendors to our local bicycle culture. This event also creates a forum for local trail organizations to promote their trails to avid cyclists and hikers. This helps stimulate trail towns who build hospitality businesses around the cycle tourism.
Aero Tech also sponsors and serves the Pittsburgh area's primary bicycle advocacy organization - Bike Pittsburgh. This organization has created a master plan or vision to build out a safe infrastructure within the city to keep our cyclists safe on designated roads with greenways and sharrows. Bike Pittsburgh is in the process of implementing "Bike Share" which is catching on big time in many urban cities across the United States. Pittsburgh's bike share will be 50 stations and the bikes will be yellow. This is made possible by the hard work of many volunteers and the financial support of local foundations and a lot of active political planning. This makes our local community more bicycle friendly and a more progressive town. We may not be as cool as Portland or Madison, but we are working together to advance the mission of building safe bikeways.
