Rules and Regs and etc.
This is a Pittsburgh City Park. ACA does not own or have exclusive use of this facility. The ACA does have a permit from the city to use this course on Wed. evenings. However, please be courteous to other citizens who may be using the course when you arrive. There are restroom and vending facilities in the police building adjacent to the course which we are permitted to use. So... Please use the toilets there instead of the woods. Wash. Blvd is busy and there will be persons and police coming and going from the parking lot, so the last thing we need is an irate motorist complaining of public urination. Do not use the parking lot for warmups or cooldowns. The police complain (and enforce this) every week about this, so either warmup in the infield, ride up to the Highland Park resevoir, use the roads or bring trainers or rollers.

Weather Conditions
Event is held rain or shine, except in downpour situations.
Promoters reserve the right to combine classes in inclement conditions.
Check the web site (Allegheny Cycling Association) for cancellations at 5:00pm.
The aca mail list will also be used to announce cancellations or changes.
