Community Bike Ride List Jan 3-9, 2015

HAPPY NEW YEARS!!!! Hopefully this list will help keep you motivated and in the saddle all year long.  Personally, my goal is to do at least as much if not more for the cycling community in 2015 as I did in 2014.

Arizona Bicycle Center- Tucson’s Velodrome project

On Friday, December12, there was a bond meeting to decide if the advisory board would support the construction of a Velodrome in Tucson as part of the next bond election.  Having been my first meeting on the subject, here is a one line summary.  The cycling community came out in force, but we seemed very unprepared to address the questions and concerns of the advisory council.  If you want a detailed summary see the blog http://bikepilgrim.com/?p=405 Based on that meeting Continue Reading ››

Tucson Velodrome. To be or not to be?

Tucson and a Velodrome Of all the great cycling infrastructure we have in Tucson it seems like a Velodrome is a missing link. Over the past few years I have had many conversations on the Velodrome and the history in getting it built here. I was thinking of going into that here, but am going to skip it because where we have come from is less important than what we need to do today and in the next 30 days. Continue Reading ››
