bicycle touring across the United States

We ride longer...

< 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 schnaubelt rogers, first women to ride a pedego across the united states.  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.  She was able to test and fine tune our cycling gear while riding 85 miles a day.  The Big ride is 3300 miles in 48 days from Seattle, Washington to Washington DC.

Mission Statement Aero Tech Designs will innovate, design, and market, high quality cyclewear products that meet and exceed the needs of our   customers.  Our products will enhance performance with emphasis on technical design.  We are committed to honesty and integrity in all our business relationships.

Our goal is to provide the best possible products; we will achieve this through our constant contact with our customers as they express their needs and wants.  As our business grows, we will expand our product lines into other synergistic items. We will price our products fairly while maintaining a commitment to shareholder value.

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 bike-ways.  

Ride your mountain bike on the Hollow Oak Land Trust's new single track trail. The trust is a local land conservatory organization that seeks to protect our watershed and reptile habitat. They just opened an exciting single track - mountain bike trail down the road from our shop. We are thrilled to have so much local activity and support from avid and hard working volunteers.

We continue to support our local bicycle advocacy organizations and will  do our  part in building bicycle culture for future generations to enjoy.   See you on the road....


Need Custom Cycling Kits or Team Jerseys?

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.
