Winterhaven tours this year will be pedal-powered! Owner of the bike company states, “Tucson is sort of a bike-friendly community by all accounts, and this bike is an entertaining thing, and it’s a great way for people to get together and see the neighborhood as a group of friends or family.”

Another mile (in each direction) of bike lanes was added to the bikeway network this weekend. Speedway between Silverbell and Greasewood now has a dedicated space for biking. A big thanks to the Bicycle Advisory Committee and Tucson Department of Transportation for making it happen!

I know many of you have already been sharing this article. But I can't help but think Tucson would be the perfect location to pilot this in the U.S. Anyone know anyone at TEP and can convince them to fund this?!

Thank you Forbes Magazine for giving Tucson some props! Check it out...
"Take Tucson for example. The city developed a 2009 Regional Plan for Bicycling and identified 170 miles of potential “Bicycle Boulevards”. This term refers attractive, convenient and comfortable sections of street, optimized for cycling with reduced motorized traffic. The introduction of Cyclovia events (Spanish word signifying the closure of a street network) has motivated thousands of Tucsonans ditch their cars and spend a few hours in the city’s temporarily traffic-free streets."

Not only is it the law, but it is really important for your safety to have lights on your bike when you are riding after sundown. Need a new set of lights? We're bringing back the 'Light the Night' event where we'll be handing out FREE lights this Tuesday. Thanks to Pima Association of Governments and the Living Streets Alliance for partnering to make this happen.
