Bike with us through the watershed! (Noon to 3pm)
The Nine Mile Run Bike Tour & Block Party is back for its second year! This year’s guided bike tour will cover 9 miles through the watershed communities of Wilkinsburg, Regent Square, Swissvale, Homewood, Edgewood, and of course, lower Frick Park. We will explore green rainwater initiatives, community projects, and watershed features as we leisurely, and safely, traverse the watershed neighborhoods. For those of you who joined us last year, we have created a revamped route with some new locations. The tour will both begin and end at Biddle’s Escape coffee shop, starting at noon and finishing around 3pm.
Party with us at Biddle’s! (2pm to 5pm)
The Bike Tour will be followed by a free entry, family friendly Block Party on Biddle’s Escape block (S. Trenton, from Biddle Ave to Union Street). Stop by from 2pm till 5pm to enjoy tasty food, fun music, neat activities, and more. What a great way to explore and celebrate your community on a fall Saturday!
Residential street parking is available in the neighborhood surrounding Biddle’s Cafe.
