I lived in Pittsburgh for 16 years and I maintain a leisurely 10MPH up McArdle EVERY TIME
Besides, if you live on Mt. Washington you should be the one using the incline to commute. How cool will it be to tell your grandkids that you got to work on an incline and a huge paddle boat every morning?
I hear ya but I work 20 minutes outside of Pittsburgh so the incline/boat isn't and option.
BTW. I was the guy 2 feet behind you in your rearview mirror with my highbeams on.
