    Bike Ambassadors working with Pima County’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Program will give out the bells on a first-come, first- served basis. They are adjustable and fit any diameter handlebars on all bikes. They also will have copies of brand-new and updated May 2016 Loop maps that fold down to business-card size and other safety publications. They also will hand out reflective stickers for kids.
