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).

New route for fall Cyclovia Tucson

Brand new route this year for the very popular Cyclovia Tucson, a fun family activity w/o cars. People of all ages bike, walk, stroll, skate the route, which is closed to vehicular traffic.

Living Streets Alliance is pleased to announce that on Sunday, October 29th from 10am to 3pm, Cyclovia Tucson will take place on a new route along South 12th Avenue from West 39th Street to Mission Manor Park. This 3.75-mile long route is home to dozens of locally owned small businesses featuring some of Tucson’s best Mexican food, plus scores of schools, community centers, places of worship, parks and neighborhoods. Dozens of free activities will line the route, concentrated around 5 activity hubs, and local restaurants will welcome guests with expanded outdoor seating for the day.

Community members, business owners, and representatives from South 12th Avenue’s many schools and organizations have been hard at work for months planning an event that will showcase the unique aspects of the area. A youth Mariachi showcase will take place outside Pueblo High School, there are all-class reunions for Sunnyside High School and Pueblo High alumni taking place at different locations along the route, live music by Jimmy Carr and The Awkward Moments , Santa Pachita and Escuelita Musical will be featured outside of El Guero Canelo Restaurante Mexicano, and BK Carne Asada & Hot Dogs will host the high-flying zip line and rock climbing wall. The South 12th Avenue route will more than ever have something to offer everyone. “More info at: https://www.cycloviatucson.org/
