Geared Up & Grounded: Bike Tour & Block Party

July 23 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

$25 – $80

Allegheny County has over 60,000 vacant lots.

Most are overgrown and unmaintained.

The majority of these vacant lots are concentrated in black and brown communities that happen to also below-income. This is an environmental and racial justice emergency. Grounded elevates the voices of community champion and supports their ongoing efforts to reclaim and steward these abandoned spaces. You make this work possible. Together, we are helping residents create and sustain vibrant spaces across the county.

The 2022 Geared Up and Grounded Bike Tour & Block Party will showcase community projects and resident champions in the Hill District neighborhood of Pittsburgh, PA.

At each stop, we will speak to community partners, learning about their journey and the transformation of vacant spaces into activated places. For those who do not have a bike, we encourage you to rent a POGOH bike! The ride will feature some grades, a slow to moderate pace, and the route length is approximately 10 miles.

After the guided bike tour marshaled by Pittsburgh Major Taylor Cycling Club, stay for the block party, featuring raffles, food, drinks & music!!!
