IT'S PITTSBURGH
"I wanted to showcase the hills."

January 26, 2011

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 DIRTY DOZEN. 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!

Coming Up Next on Its Pittsburgh

Monday, August 25, 2014
"I taste them everywhere I go."
This program is a sampler of "Extras" from 3 of our Pittsburgh History Series specials. From RIGHTBESIDETHERIVER, Nic DiSio from Reyna Foods shows us how he makes tortilla chips in Cadogan, PA, and we talk to folks in California, PA, about an old movie of their town in 1938. Then we share some extra bits from UNDERGROUNDPITTSBURGHand WHATMAKESPITTSBURGHPITTSBURGH? Good fun stuff!
