Transition Pittsburgh, a newer group in Pittsburgh focused on community building and sustainable development, is organizing the Pittsburgh Mini Climate Ride. This ride is a 15 mile bike ride around Pittsburgh which will stop at local businesses and nonprofits that are focused on sustainability. The ride will raise funds for the national Climate Ride.
