"I wanted to showcase the hills."
It's a one-day bicycle ride around Pittsburgh. It covers 13 very steep hills. It's a test of strength, endurance, biking skills and human perseverence. It's called the DIRTYDOZEN. It was started in 1983 by Danny Chew, his brother and some of their friends. It's now a Pittsburgh tradition and an extraordinary celebration of our city's terrain!

Description:

The local art scene, job prospects and affordability were some of the reasons why Pittsburgh has received national honors for being one of the “most livable” cities in the country. But what we want to know is why the folks who call our fair city home live here. What’s brought them here and, perhaps more importantly, what keeps them around year after year. Why live here is the question and Rick Sebak seeks out the answer from the people in this “most livable” city.
