Join us for this year’s 7th Annual Geared Up & Grounded: Bike Tour and Block Party on October 13th! It will be hosted at our friend’s place, Providence Connections in the Northside, which is one of our Green Stormwater Implementation sites. Grounded has partnered with many friends throughout Allegheny County to build capacity and transform vacant land into community assets. Geared Up is just one of the ways we get to celebrate these spaces and share them with you.
The bike tour will feature Starbucks Coffee, treats from Eat’n Park, and bicycle mechanic support from Waxwing Cycles; riders will roll out at 9:30 am so plan to arrive early to eat and mingle with friends. Along the ride, guides from the Grounded team and Pittsburgh Major Taylor Cycling Club will be there to help you safely navigate the way. We will get to explore the Northside neighborhoods and chat with community partners who helped to bring these projects to life.
If you can’t ride, don’t worry! Starting at 1:00 pm, there will be a block party hosted at Providence Connections featuring music by Smokestack Lightning, food by La Palapa food truck, libations from local breweries, funnel cakes, tiny bike relay and a host of other family-friendly activities!
