    Get Rolling on Bike to Work Day

    There may not be such a thing as a free lunch, but how about free breakfast? Downtown workers pedaling to work on Bike to Work Day on Wednesday, April 23, are welcome to stop by the Main Library plaza near Stone and Pennington from 7-9:00 a.m. for breakfast refreshments. The event, as part of April’s Bike Fest festivities, is sponsored by Pima County Department of Environmental Quality, The City of Tucson Department of Transportation, and Pima Association of Governments. Check out the Bike Fest listings for several other Bike to Work Day and Pedal the Pueblo Week activities and discounts available around town.

    Not sure of the best way to get to work on your bike? Try Pima County’s new interactive map to help you find a bike route close to home. And don’t forget about The Loop, a 100-mile, car-free, multi-use path that connects the Rillito River Path to the Santa Cruz Path and beyond!  It’s a great, low-stress way to ride your bike and enjoy the sites. Don’t live near The Loop? Look for a bike path that you can take to commute to work while getting exercise, reducing congestion and pollution from motor vehicle trips, and helping to save the planet.

    Bike Fest TucsonAs it says on its website, “Bike Fest Tucson is an annual celebration of the most incredible form of human-powered transportation in the world – the bicycle! Clean and green, so simple, elegant, affordable and fun – the bicycle deserves an entire month dedicated to celebrating its beauty and practicality.” Bike Fest Tucson is organized by Living Streets Alliance and is sponsored by many organizations including Pima County Department of Environmental Quality, Pima Association of Governments, and the City of Tucson.
