Two Cyclovia Tucson Events this Year: April 7 & 28

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.

The Tucson Progressive: Pamela J. Powers

I stand on the side of Love. I believe in kindness to all creatures on Earth and the inherent self-worth of all individuals–not just people who agree with me or look like me.

Widespread economic and social injustice prompted me to become a candidate for the Arizona House, representing Legislative District 9 in the 2016 election.

My platform focused on economic reforms to grow Arizona’s economy, establish a state-based public bank, fix our infrastructure, fully fund public education, grow local small businesses and community banks, and put people back to work at good-paying jobs.

In the Arizona House, I was a strong voice for fiscal responsibility a moratorium on corporate tax breaks until the schools were fully funded, increased cash assistance to the poor, expansion of maternal healthcare benefits, equal rights, choice, unions, education at all levels and protecting our water supply.

After three terms, I retired from the Arizona Legislature in January 2023 but will continue to blog and produce my podcast “A View from the Left Side.”
