Bike Racks – Pittsburgh Airport

What you are seeing is a bicycle rack that has been installed at the Pittsburgh Airport.   More specifically, you are seeing an EMPTY bike rack at the Pittsburgh Airport.  We have had a friend on Facebook documenting this bike rack and.. the lack of it’s use since last July!!!!

Our JIU (Jagoff Investigative Unit) has done it’s best on this one.. checking out rules for cycling on the highways leading do the airport as well as searching for really, really good reasons for installing a bike rack at the airport.  As it turns out, you really ARE allowed to ride your bike on the the Parkway going to the Airport AND the Montour Trail actually, kind of, does lead to the airport.

As an additional note.. the JIU staff saw absolutely ZERO people riding their bicycle, toting Pierre Cardin matching luggage bags OR even a backpack, trying to catch a plane to ANYWHERE!

While we doubt that the bike rack was a budget-buster of any kind, we do wonder what in theeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee hell is a bike rack doing at our airport which is located waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay out there in Findlay Township?  Is this perhaps a crazy scheme to get more people to ride their bikes to the airport and therefore petition to have the airport moved to the Pittsburgh South Side???

Is this a prop eventually to be used in yet another movie to be shot in Pittsburgh… where Bruce Willis will ride a Huffy Bike with a banana seat and a 5-foot Sissy Bar and a Stargell Baseball card taped to the spokes along side a 747 taxiing down the runway and he jumps from the bike to the cockpit and stops the plane????

Hell, the Bruce Willis movie theory is just about as plausible as seeing a husband and wife come home from their 10-day Carribean Cruise, unlocking their bikes and cycling home to Verona.

Can someone PA-leeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeze explain to us why County money and employee time were used to put in this bike rack, Ya Jagoffs???

The “Jagoff” Left!

Surely you have heard of the “Pittsburgh Left.”  What you see in the photo above is, a complete lack of respect for other drivers, selfishness and what WE would call, the “Jagoff Left.”

We’ve all been in the wrong lane at some point (happens all the time on McKnight Road near Ross Park Mall) and then you’re stuck.  You look to see if you can take advantage of a 12-14 inch opening in between 2 cars and you dart over into the lane you want.  It sometimes results in you getting a horn but, if you smile, gave a fake “thanks buddy” wave then, well, no biggie!

And sometimes you are forced to go the direction you didn’t intend to go but you drive until you  find a safe place to turn around and get back on track.  Of course, the whole time you’re doing this your GPS voice won’t shut the hell up… “Recalculating… Turn Left Ahead…Recalculating, Make First Right.. Recalculating.

But not THIS Monroeville driver…..he/she made a mistake and.. well, they’ll just fix it by just pulling in front of someone.  And no doubt, when that someone beeps and yells at them, this Monroeville driver yells back as if its the OTHER guy that’s the Jag!

Hey you might wanna get off that phone and stop talking with your hands and concentrate on where you’re driving cuz you’re making a great case for installing sub-bumper-tire-flattening-torpedo-darts on all future car models, Ya Jagoff!!
