I love Tucson's bike culture. While out in the field FAR from downtown, I came across this mailbox. A BICAS creation I'm guessing? Thanks Tucson for embracing cycling the way you do.

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."

Even though the automobile is still the king of the American commute by a considerable stretch, that doesn't necessarily mean US cities are particularly unfriendly to cyclists. In fact, many cities across the United States are making huge strides in implementing safe and efficient bike lanes. Take T…

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.

Did you know that when the 4th Avenue underpass is closed to cars heading into downtown, bicycles can still go thru? The 'Bicycles Exempt' sign was placed on the roadway barrier to let everyone know bicycles are allowed.

Great news! New census data shows that Tucson's bike-to-work rate is higher than it has ever been at 3.4%! That is more than 5 times the national average and a 21% increase from last year. That puts us at the 7th highest for larger cities! That is good but we can still do better. We are excited about a ton of projects in the works that will improve the connectivity of our system and make it easier for more Tucsonans to leave their cars at home and hop on a bike!
