Join the Grounded team for a fall bike ride to visit vibrant, reclaimed community green spaces.
The Pittsburgh region has over 30,000 vacant lots, many of which are overgrown and unmaintained. More importantly, the majority of these vacant lots are concentrated in black and brown communities that happen to also be low-income, creating an environmental and racial justice emergency.
Grounded elevates community champions and their efforts to reclaim these abandoned spaces, and turn them into vibrant community assets for everyone to enjoy. Come along and see these sites firsthand and meet the neighborhood advocates making it happen!
Costumes encouraged! A Prize for best costume will be determined by guest judges!!!
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, Healthy Ride bikes will be available for use! After the guided bike tour marshaled by Pittsburgh Major Taylor Cycling Club.
The ride will feature gentle grades, a slow to moderate pace, and the route length is approximately 20 miles.
*COVID Protocol: All riders are required to wear a mask during the ride!
