Streets Map

Pittsburgh ranks near the top of another national list, and this time it’s the “Top 10 U.S. Steepest Streets,” a chart rating terrible hills for cyclists created by Fixr and featured at Urban Velo. Clocking in as the country’s second slantiest street (after Hawaii’s Waipio Valley Road), is Pittsburgh’s own Canton Avenue in Beechview. Fixr writes that “Canton is actually the steepest public street in the United States, only second steepest in the Guinness Book of Records because of a mistake in calculations (taking first place is Baldwin St. in New Zealand).”
