Citizen Science: Air Quality Bike Ride with Venture Outdoors

Learn about the air you breathe and discover some unexpected sources of pollution on this easy paced bike ride. Using bicycle monitors as well as surveys, we’ll collect data from several of Pittsburgh’s riverfront trails to inform about the care and needs of each specific site. We’ll pedal 12 – 15 miles on this outing. Bike rentals are not available for this outing.
