    Bike ambassadors
    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 November 2016 Loop maps that fold down to business-card size. Ambassadors also will be handing out bike and pedestrian safety bookmarks to help people understand how to safely share the path.
