Whimsical Bike Count #6 — Business Attire
September 24, 2015 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm
Do you get on your two wheels as part of your daily routine to get to work, pick up kids, buy groceries, etc. — in other words, as a means of transportation in your normal, everyday clothes? Then you’re a part of Tucson’s “everyday biking” scene! The national advocacy organization People for Bikes is on a quest to name the everyday biking capital of the United States through a nationwide competition that involves a series of monthly themed bike counts. Unlike the “serious” and “scientific” bike counts, these are all about “fun” and “whimsy.” (You can read more here.)
September’s count theme is people riding in business attire (jackets, blouses, ties, office-friendly skirts and dresses). We know this is a tough one to win for a city with its very own non-business dress code, also known as “Tucson casual,” but that’s exactly what makes this challenge more fun, right? So, how about joining us in your best grown-up clothes and showing some camaraderie for the folks who actually have to dress up to go to work in other parts of the country?
Please note that have a new downtown count location to capture the bulk of the slacks and skirts: the intersection of Toole Avenue and Stone Avenue by the protected bike lane. RSVP on our facebook event page here, invite your friends, and help Tucson get ahead of Memphis!
Here’s what’s in store for the final two months of the challenge:
- October 29: Costumes (Happy Halloween!)
- November 19: Beards
