    Bike Ambassadors working with Pima County’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Program will give out the items on a first-come, first-served basis. Bells are adjustable and fit any diameter handlebars on all bikes. 

    In addition to the events at set locations along The Loop, other Ambassadors plan to “roam The Loop” meaning they will take supplies on their bikes, then ride in either direction from the Ambassadors’ station to go visit other trailheads and rest stops and provide items to users. Among the additional items that Ambassadors will pass out are bike and pedestrian safety bookmarks to help people understand how to safely share the path.

    All events will be held from 6:30 to 9:30 a.m. Dates and locations are:
    • Saturday, July 1: Julian Wash Greenway, north bank, at Thomas Jay Regional Park, 6465 S. Craycroft Road;
    • Sunday, July 9: Santa Cruz River Park, west bank south of Speedway Boulevard – Huron Street and Riverside Drive (800 N. Riverside Drive);
    • Saturday, July 22: Heirloom Farmers Market, Rillito River Park, 4502 N. 1st Ave.;
    • Sunday, Aug. 6: Pantano River Park (east bank) at Michael Perry Park, 8700 E. Arbor St.;
    • Saturday, Aug. 19: Julian Wash Greenway, Augie Acuña Los Ninos Park, 5432 S. Bryant Ave.
