Cyclovia– a community event celebrating cycling and sustainable living– is holding two “car-free” and “care-free” community bike rides in April.
On April 7, a downtown loop ride will take participants from downtown through the Armory Park Neighborhood. Booths, demonstrations, and kids’ activities will be available along the route.
On April 28, there will be a route through midtown Tucson neighborhoods– from Keeling Desert Park (near 6th Ave. and Glenn) and traveling up to Brandi Fenton Park (on the Rillito River Path).
Check it out. It’s so refreshing to take a leisurely bike ride with friends and family and not have to worry about cars and traffic.
Cyclovia is a worldwide phenomenon which began in Bogota. Background here.
Here is a somewhat wacky video I shot with a very bouncy video camera mounted on my bike for the 2011 Cyclovia Tucson.
