The most recent People for Bikes #EverydayBiking Challenge Whimsical Bike Count took place on June 25th, encouraging all participating cities to count the number of people wearing dresses or skirts while biking. While top marks for Tucson have evaded us in this challenge so far, Tucsonans did not disappoint in June. Neither the heat nor the threat of monsoon rain kept more than 200 bicycle riders from riding past the count location at W. University Blvd. and N. Fourth Ave. wearing all kinds of “skirt”-like apparel.
Take a look at all the photos from the count here.
We are happy to report that Tucson blew the competition away last month, finally besting our unlikely nemesis in the quest to be the everyday biking capital of the U.S., Memphis, TN. Check out the official results and read all about the latest challenge count here.
The challenge continues in July! Break out your spandex and lycra and be sure to mark your calendars for the next Whimsical Bike Count on Thursday, July 30th from 4:30 – 5:30 pm at the corner of W. University Blvd. and N. 4th Ave. RSVP and invite friends on Facebook using this event link here.
