6th Annual Two Wheels Lots of Green: Bike Tour & Block Party

October 7 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

On a sunny October day, GTECH celebrated Pittsburgh’s greenspace community with a guided bike tour and block party! This year’s Two Wheels Lots of Green event featured Pittsburgh’s East End. We rode 6.5 miles and made stops in Larimer, Homewood, and Wilkinsburg.

2017 Featured Greenspace Projects & Partners

At each stop, we spoke to community partners, learning about their journey and the transformation of vacant spaces into activated places.

Stop 1:¬†Ms. Betty Lane’s African Healing Garden & Chatman Properties for the URA LandCare Program

Stop 2: Grow Pittsburgh’s Garden Resource Center

Stop 3: Homewood Green Playce with Bible Center Church

Stop 4: Wilkinsburg Green Playce with Hosanna House

Stop 5: Sankofa Village Community Garden

Stop 6: Tioga Play Yard with Operation Better Block

We’re excited to present a new design by our friend and local artist, Seth Storck. Get the GTECH bike shirt at our store.

After the guided bike tour, we celebrated with our friends and community partners at a block party outside of GTECH’s office on Julius St. Thanks to all of our sponsors and vendors for an incredible afternoon! See pictures from the event below:
