Yesterday was another glorious sunny Sunday in Tucson, but what made it extra special was a series of sustainable living events downtown– Cyclovia, Solar Rock, and The Water Project.
Participants in Cyclovia— a five-mile car-free community bike ride– were treated with a tour of Barrio Viejo and Armory Park, without those annoying cars.
Various stops– like the free bike check-up and Paint-Your-Own-Bike-Bell tent, both sponsored by BICAS; the annual Solar Rock concert in Armory Park; and The Water Project in Armory Park Center– were along the Cyclovia route.
Bicycles and riders of all shapes, sizes, and vintages took part in Cyclovia and relaxed at Armory Park afterward. People danced on the lawn as Spirit Familia jammed. Others lay in the grass and played with their children or chatted with friends. It was a beautiful day all around.
I applaud these groups for coordinating this marvelous community event. Check out the video for a taste of the day.
