April 2018 Bike Fest Tucson

“What is Bike Fest?

Tucson is known for being a bicyclists paradise. The Old Pueblo has a bustling bicycle community, numerous mixed-use trails, and plenty of on-street facilities for people on bikes of all ages.

So, why not celebrate?!

Every year, Bike Fest brings out the best of bicycling by rounding up a whole slew of events to celebrate “life on two wheels”.

In 2017, we loved seeing our community create and share their favorite bike events, including rides to ice cream shops, breweries, and farmers markets, a BMX show, bike maintenance classes, karaoke rides, a scavenger hunt, a bike-in movie, campouts, a ride to work with the Mayor, and of course – Cyclovia!

In 2017, YOU helped organize 74 Bike Fest events attended by 37,350 participants!”

Check out the Calendar of Events, including Spring Cyclovia on April 8,  Tour de Cookie on April 14, and Bike In Breakfast ride with Mayor Jonathan Rothschild on April 19. Get on your bikes and ride all the month of April (and beyond).
