Bike Pittsburgh Fundraiser Tonight

I'm really sorry for posting this event so late. Bikefest Pittsburgh is kicking off a series of events with a fundaiser tonight downtown. I also seriously apologise for the weird cut and paste job here. For whatever reason, their website resisted copying text off it.
