  • Bike safety classes, maps offered by County

    Pima County’s Bike Ambassadors will hand out newly printed maps of The Loop (Pima County’s 131-mile, shared-use path), bike bells and other safety items as part of outreach events held through the end of June 2018. 

    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 distribute are bike and pedestrian safety bookmarks to help people understand how to safely share the path.

    Dates and locations are:
    • Sunday, May 6, 6-9 a.m., Pantano River Park at Michael Perry Park, 8700 E. Arbor St.;
    • Sunday, May 20, 6-9 a.m., Rillito River Park and Craycroft Road;
    • Sunday, June 3, 6-9 a.m., Julian Wash Greenway at Roy Schoonover Trailhead; and
    • Sunday, June 24, 6-9 a.m., Santa Cruz River Park at Tucson's Loop Bicycle Shop, 3201 W. Diamond St.
    In addition, the Bicycle and Pedestrian Program has finalized its list of safety classes offered in May and June. All classes are conducted by League of American Bicyclists cycling instructors, and free bike safety items such as helmets, bike lights, and u-locks are often included with participation.
