This is a special BIKE FEST edition of the City of Tucson's Bicycle & Pedestrian Newsletter. It is designed to inform Tucson's bicyclists and pedestrians about current bike/ped happenings, how you can get involved, and how you can have fun on bike or on foot!
Program and City logos
Organized by Living Streets Alliance, "Bike Fest Tucson is an annual celebration of the most incredible form of human-powered transportation in the world – the bicycle! Clean and green, so simple, elegant, affordable and fun – the bicycle deserves an entire month dedicated to celebrating its beauty and practicality." What fun rides have you joined in this month? (Email Jessica to share your favorite experiences.) 

There are lots of fun Bike Fest Tucson events these last two weeks of April. Check out the details below for a few highlights.

Bike to Work with the Mayor

Have you dreamed of riding alongside Mayor Jonathan Rothschild on your way to work? Would you like to start your day sipping free coffee and sharing your thoughts on biking in Tucson with members of the Tucson-Pima County Bicycle Advisory Committee and Living Streets Alliance? Now is your chance!

Meet at the flagpole just west of Old Main on the UA Campus at 6:45am on Wednesday, April 23rd. Along with the Mayor, members of the BAC and LSA, you will leisurely ride* to the Pima County Downtown Library, where you will enjoy free coffee and snacks.

*Please note that some parts of the ride will be along the modern streetcar route. Check out the Living Streets Alliance Streetcar Safety Tips page.

Stop by the Bike-to-Work Commuter Station

No matter where your morning commute takes you on Wednesday, April 23rd, stop by the Bike-to-work commuter station at the plaza in front of the Pima County Downtown Library (the same place the "Bike to work with the Mayor" ride concludes) between 7am and 9am for free coffee and snacks. 

The commuter station is sponsored by the City of Tucson Bicycle and Pedestrian Program and the Pima County Department of Environmental Quality

Bike commuting is fun, environmentally-friendly, and beneficial to the local economy. Did you know that commuting by bike can benefit your employer, too? Share these facts from People for Bikes and the Alliance for Biking and Walking with your employer and encourage your co-workers to try biking to work with you!


Pedal the Pueblo

This week, April 21st through 25th, is "Pedal the Pueblo." All week, you can get great discounts for riding your bike to the coolest local businesses, including restaurants, coffee shops, wellness centers, grocery stores, and more! Check out the complete list of participating businesses here.

At the end of the week, join us for the Pedal the Pueblo Grand Finale: a happy-hour celebration at MOCA (Tucson's Museum of Contemporary Art - click here for map) from 4pm to 6pm on Friday, April 25th. 

Bike to the event and you will find lots of secure, indoor bike parking. You can also tour MOCA for free and enjoy free food and drinks! There will be door prizes, give-aways, and - most importantly - awards for Bicycle Commuter of the Year, Bicycle Advocate of the Year, and Bicycle Business of the Year.
