Missed the Dirty Dozen this past Friday, Pittsburgh’s extreme biking event featuring our steepest streets?

Catch some of the action here in CityLab’s story on the steepest streets in the country.  “The second-slantiest street, for instance, is said to be Canton Avenue in Pittsburgh. It is the “steepest public street in the United States,” writes Fixr, “only second steepest in the Guinness Book of Records because of a mistake in calculations (1st is Baldwin St. New Zealand, thought to have been 38% but is actually 35%).”

See the top 10 steepest streets in the country and don’t miss the video by Joshua Franzen featuring Beechview’s Canton St. in all its glory as cyclists take it on in the Dirty Dozen.
