Thanks for Sampling the City in East End with us! For photos of the event, check out our Facebook album including past rides.

Last week, our Research and Policy Coordinator, Anthony D’Souza trained students at Milby High School on Flow2 air monitors in preparation to Sample the City on their ride.

We want to say thank you to our partners, Wellness on Wheels, Communities in Schools-Houston and Houston Bcycle for joining us this Saturday. Other groups including EaDo Bike Co. rode with us, and Harris County Constable Precinct 6 escorted the group to ensure the safety of our riders.

Milby High School students worked with Mr. Rene Gonzales, who represents Milby HS, Wellness on Wheels and Communities in Schools-Houston to create a 16 mile loop around and through Houston’s East End, including a stop at El Segundo Coffee Lab for a treat.

They made sure to add stops at suspected polluter sites and saw that the Flow2 monitors lit up purple, indicating high pollution levels. During the ride some students pointed out their own homes, underscoring the importance of knowing the air quality in your neighborhood.

You can find photos from this ride and previous Sampling the City events on our Facebook page.

Our Sampling the City rides bring air quality data and education to communities. They are one of the ways that AAH works towards Environmental Justice in Houston.

Stay tuned as we will be releasing the results from the data collected by the students soon.
