About Two Wheels Lots of Green Bike Tour
GTECH Strategies will host its 4th annual Two Wheels Lots of Green Bike Tour on Saturday, August 22, from 3-9 p.m. The event will be held in conjunction with Bike PGH’s Bike Fest, which offers guided bike tours of developed green spaces in the North Side.
The bike tour acts as a project showcase and fundraiser for GTECH and will introduce people in the community to the varied greening projects GTECH has developed. For the last three years, GTECH has worked to create gardens, parklets and play areas in the 5,405 vacant lots throughout the target area.
The Lots of Green Bike Tour will cover more than 15 miles of the North Side. Local eateries located along the tour trail will provide bikers with refreshments to stay hydrated.
The cost to attend is $15 per person. Register online prior to the event. Riders should meet at Wigle Whiskey, located at 1055 Spring Garden Avenue before the tour begins.
