Chase Clements of Pittsburgh takes a break recently along the Great Allegheny Passage bike trail in Downtown McKeesport with his latest creation, a bicycle with a special compartment for his dog, Sonny.
Built about two months ago, Clements said it's the 10th such bike that he's constructed from spare parts.
Clements and a friend, Leia Tomer, were out for a ride on the trail when rain forced them to pause near the War Memorial at the end of Market Street.
