Kidical Mass: BEYOND Tucson Ride
January 10, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pmFREE
Living Streets Alliance is partnering with BEYOND Tucson and El Grupo Youth Cycling to get you and your family moving in 2015!
Let’s celebrate the beginning of the year by encouraging healthy, active lifestyles for the whole family and engage in a fun, safe activity that is good for the environment too! Though plenty of parking is available, plan ahead and leave the car at home – join us by bike for a car-free day of healthy activity.
Look for LSA Kidical Mass signs at the southwest corner of Armory Park near the intersection with South 6th Avenue at 12 pm and then tool around with us and El Grupo youth cycling teammates on a route that is safe, easy and shows how simple it is to get to all your favorite places by riding your bike.
You will be accompanied by trained ride leaders and families from across Tucson on all types of bikes – trailers, trail-a-bikes, Xtracycles, longtails, bakfiets, Long Johns, tandems, folders, trikes – whatever rolls is welcome to join the ride! Dress accordingly to be comfortable outside for at least an hour. We’ll have some tools, a tire pump, and first aid supplies on hand – just in case!
Free helmets for youth will be available for those who need them and will be fitted by trained volunteers in bicycle safety workshops. There will also be a free Bike Valet so you can park your bike and join the BEYOND Tucson festivities at Armory Park and the Childrens’ Museum (FREE admission this Saturday!).
Helmets and the Bike Valet are provided by the Living Streets Alliance and Pima County Bicycle Ambassadors.
