The European Cyclists' Federation and UN-Habitat have committed to advocating for bicycling as a means of transportation (not just a recreational tool). Exciting!

"This agreement engages both parties to advocate for better recognition within city plans and policies of the importance and benefits of cycling as a mode of transport and will collaborate through sharing expertise to achieve a mutual goal of improving urban mobility patterns worldwide."

Still trying to figure out whether or not Tucson's Bike Boulevards should be renamed something else. In London they are going with 'Quietways'. Thoughts?! Soon we'll be sharing the results of our survey in which over 500 people weighed in on what to call them.

This may actually make sense, thanks to the city's unique street design.

Have you signed up to volunteer for the April 6 Cyclovia Tucson yet?! It takes over 200 volunteers to make the event a success. Help make Tucson as fun and unique as we all want it to be. There are opportunities before or during the event and tasks that require only one volunteer or some where groups can sign up together. A lot of options! And this year one volunteer option is helping out at the Tucson Hullabaloo at Armory Park , a two-day music festival in conjunction with Cyclovia!
