Pima County Board of Supervisors Proclaim the week of March 21 – March 27, 2011 to be Cyclovia Tucson Week. The Board encourages all Pima County residents to join the fun and participate to promote cycling, walking, and to engage in other healthy street activities. Cyclovia is on Sunday, March 27th.
