  1. Biked the entire route (and back) for a total of 5 plus miles, and some. Started off winning a free loaf of bread at Beyond Bread’s booth, then my friend Susan dared to try the zip line activity (not me), and we biked through the various activity hubs, seeing FB friends and bicyclists along the way. Saw the Frida Kahlo “Casa Azul” exhibit and Supervisor Richard Elias’ booth offer colorful “Dump Trump” posters for a donation. TUSD Gov. Bd. candidate Betts Putnam-Hidalgo also on the route, being visited by current Bd. member Michael Hicks. Another hour/half to go, but it’s getting hot (typical Tucson). Another successful fall Cyclovia.
