Three Rivers Heritage Trail
Lovely bike trail that goes by the riverside for several miles. You can get on at Federal Street, where there's a Healthy Ride station for bike rentals ($2/hr) and then ride it to Millvale or Sharpsburg, where there are a number of great breweries.
If you want to see the city from the river trail - rent a bike (located at the kiosk on the corner of 22nd and E. Carson Street), and head down to the trail entrance below 18th and Wharton Streets. or another trail entrance at Hot Metal Street.
Ride bikes, take a jog, or leisurely stroll along the Three Rivers Trail which follows the Allegheny River. Great views of the city.
Great biking trails that run besides the three rivers. Grab a healthy bike from one of the terminals around the city and rent for a few hours.

“If you are not the adventurous type, there are boring clipper river cruises which will take you around. But if you like to explore, kayaking is the best option. The river ride gives you a great view of downtown city of Pittsburgh and amazing view on the other side of the river of the city spread over the hills. Be ready to sweat it out a bit especially if the weather is a bit warm. The kayaks have the option of solo kayaks and 2 person kayaks which is a great option if you have a family. Overall a good Attraction and must do in Pittsburgh.”
“Wine/liquor store if you'd like a bottle of wine for your stay or to take to a BYOB. Pennsylvania still has some Puritanical legislation regarding sale of alcohol, so all wine and spirits must be purchased at a state store. This one is closest and in the same plaza as the Giant Eagle grocery store.”
“They make a great Moscow Mule and other mixed drinks. They have a small menu, but what they do have is pretty good. I would categorize this place as slightly upscale, with a really cool early 1900's look inside. ”
