Bicycling and sandwiches are celebrated each year when hungry cyclists bike straight through mayonnaise-filled bread walls, trying to find the coveted Golden Pickle Spear hidden within. Reap delicious rewards while avoiding the obstacles with today's deal: for $10, you get $20 worth of paninis, wraps, beers, and more at Over the Bar Bicycle Café, located on East Carson Street, just one block from the South Side Works trailhead on the Great Allegheny Passage.

Winner of City Paper's reader poll for 2009 Best New Bar/Club, Over the Bar Bicycle Café attracts bicycle buffs with its décor concocted from recycled bikes and a menu that revives fatigued bikers after a pedal-tastic day. Quell rebellious stomachs with an appetizer such as the Spoke Junkie, made from baked zucchini spooled up inside three cheeses ($6.99), or the Heritage Trail hummus ($6.99), which is supplied by Salim's in Oakland. For those who recently burned enough calories to silence Richard Simmons, fill empty stomach space with the Dirt Rag Delight burger, featuring a burger smothered in peanut butter ($7.99). Taste buds looking for a spicy challenge will find a worthy duel in the Rail Trail wrap ($7.99), as tangy buffalo chicken is enveloped in pita bread and sprinkled with blue-cheese or ranch dressing. On the other hand, cyclists who had a tough day dealing with the low acceleration of their off-road penny-farthing can loosen up over an icy-cold brew.

Over the Bar Bicycle Café delights pedal-heads with its canopy-mounted bicycles and bike-based art painted on its ceiling, reminiscent of Michelangelo's ornate frescos on the origin of scooters. Using many recycled cycles from Free Ride, the restaurant's décor ranges from banana-seaters to toilet-paper dispensers made of old bike parts. The well-executed theme should impress gear gurus, casual bikers, and sentient bicycles alike. Over the Bar also now features a free iPhone app.
