This year’s 8th Bike Tour & Block Party event will feature Grounded’s projects in Pittsburgh’s eastern neighborhoods (Larimer, Homewood, Highland Park, Point Breeze, and Wilkinsburg).
At each stop, the tour 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! Prior to the start of the bike tour local bike shop, Waxwing Cycles will be there to provide free bike inspections. After the guided bike tour by Pittsburgh Major Taylor Cycling Club, we will celebrate with our friends and community partners at a block party outside of the Grounded office that begins at 1pm until 4pm.
The family-friendly block party will feature:
