“Who wouldn’t rather be in Tucson, especially in August?! If that’s you, then you’ll fit right in on this easy, social bike ride in honor of Tucson’s birthday.
We’ll gather at the Julian Wash Archeological Park, 2820 S. 12th Ave. around 6pm and head north along the Santa Cruz River Park section of the Loop multi use path to arrive at the Mercado Annex for DJs, some dancing, drinks, and a very special birthday celebration in honor of our favorite city. Check out the bike route in the comments section.
This is a free event, but bring some cash to support local businesses at the Mercado Annex. There will be drink specials on all Tucson beers atWestbound, food available for purchase at Beaut Burger, and special surprises for Tucson’s birthday.

I apologize for the late posting but I have a good excuse. Been sick with bronchitis this week, so Even Bloggers Get the Blues. I also missed the Tugo Bike Share launch yesterday at Catalina Park.
Congrats to all riders.
Where do you want Tugo?
“Tucson’s Tugo Bike Share system will launch on Friday, November 17, with an event that formally kicks off at 12:30 p.m. Event will be at Catalina Park, 941 N. 4th Avenue (south of Speedway Blvd.)
The launch event will be emceed by Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild, who is scheduled to speak at 12:30 p.m.
Immediately after the speakers’ remarks, dozens of cyclists, including Mayor Rothschild, will ride Tugo bikes from Catalina Park to various docking stations, and the system will be open to the public.”
