Daily throughout April, the Tucson Living Street Alliance hosts Bike Fest. There’s a bike-related event, including group rides, every single day! You’ll find events popping up throughout the city, with 45 events hosted by 77 groups and organizations. Last year, over 27,000 miles were logged by 189 riders, and 2017 is slated to be bigger than ever.
Overall, 35,000 people rode a bike during last year’s Bike Fest. The most popular event is the 2-mile Commuter Challenge. It’s a fun, fast event for the whole family. Whether you’re an avid cyclist or renting your first bike in years, going on two wheels is a fantastic way to explore Tucson while visiting.
Events include biking to coffee gatherings at shops around the city, biking to the farmer’s market on Sundays, and checking out Bike-in movies. Free sunrise tours are offered along with Cyclovia Tucson: Lost Barrio to Himmel Park (an epic ride you won’t want to miss). You can join the Ride for Reading, or take part in the Will Cycle for Food challenge.
Check out the Bike Fest Pedal to Dragoon Brewing or the Bike Swap ‘n’ Sell event. The Tour de Cure helps raise funds for cancer research, and the Bike In/Camp Out is a weekend event for those who really want to experience all Tucson has to offer. Keep up with the latest events at the official site.
