Community Bike Rides October 11-18

Please let me know if you see anything that needs changing on the list or if you have an event or ride that is missing. With many of the events listed in the Event section they have a need for volunteers. Volunteering can often be more fun than the actual ride and as Bike Patrol you still get to ride. It definitely will give you a different prospective on what it takes to make all of the events happen. Also, Continue Reading ››

Community Bike Ride List for October 3rd-10th

On this weeks ride list many of the rides are geared towards El Tour De Tucson training. If you have not registered for El Tour and are considering it, please look at riding for one of the great charities. Personally, I’m riding for Tu Nidito again this year. Look, Save a Life Arizona is another I recommend riding for. If you would rather just donate, please consider donating to my ride.

Rider Back! The etiquette and skills for passing.

After the first NICA high School race my son Samuel and I had a conversation that lasted a better part of the drive from Prescott back to Tucson.  He felt that he could have done better in the race, but that he was unable to pass riders.  He mentioned riders not yielding, weaving to prevent passing and riders off the bike on hills who made it impossible to ride past them.  Sam, who is a considerate young man, (yes, I Continue Reading ››

Meeting At UAMC Hospital room with Deputy Art Gutierrez

50 weeks ago I went to UAMC- Diamonds Children center to see Brendan Lyons after he was in a collision on his bike while riding his bike on East Sunrise.   A few days later I orchestrated the media and a meeting in Brendan’s hospital room  with Senator Steve Farley and Representative Ethan Orr to discuss laws for cyclist safety.  As a result, we introduced 4 bills in the state legislature last year.  Unfortunately, not even one made it out of Continue Reading ››

What if Robin Williams Had gone for a Bike Ride

“I can’t help but think that if Robin Williams had gone for a bike ride yesterday, he might still be with us today. Bikes are good medicine. Pass it along.” This was a post that I put on facebook.  This had more “likes” than my average post, and most of the comments supported the statement.  Lisa said “I agree 100%, my biking literally gave me a second chance at life.” Ken commented “Sure works for me” and Patrick showed that Continue Reading ››

What are you willing to give up to get what you want?

Today was a historic day for equality in cycling.  The Ladies raced La Course by Le Tour de France on the bumpy Champs-Elysees.  For this story, the winner, Marianne Vos, is not as important as what it took to make this event happen. Saying that there is a discrepancy between the way professional male and female cyclist are treated is an understatement.  If one thinks it’s hard to make a living as a pro man, it is magnified for the Continue Reading ››
