GTECH’s Two Wheels, Lots of Green Bike Tour & Block Party is in its 6th year! (I know- we can’t believe it either!) This year is extra special as we are still celebrating our 10th Anniversary. 2017’s family friendly tour on bike will be guided by ride marshals from the Pittsburgh Major Taylor Cycling Club and cover 6 easy miles to the communities of Larimer, Homewood, and Wilkinsburg. The tour will begin and end at GTECH’s offices in Larimer where we’ll be closing down Julius Street for the block party.
This is a family friendly event, so bring everyone you know – and your pets too! What a great way to explore and celebrate Pittsburgh’s communities on a fall Saturday!
We will visit healing gardens, playspaces, and community gatherings spaces. It’s been 3 years since we’ve hosted this event in the east and we have a lot to share. At each stop, we will speak with community partners, learn about their journey and the transformation of vacant spaces into activated places. Tickets include programming and treats at each stop, as well as a souvenir cup to enjoy some of our favorite brews from our partners at East End Brewing Company at the after party.
Riders under the age of 13 are free! Please note, all riders must wear a helmet.
The Bike Tour will be followed by a free entry, family friendly Block Party on Julius St between GTECH’s and Sherwin Williams’ parking lots. Stop by from 1 until 4 and listen to live music from Smokestack Lightning, take part in fun and crafty activities, enter our cornhole street tournament, enjoy good eats from various food trucks and libations from East End Brewing.
Stop by and enjoy:
