And if you’re just itching to get out there and ride your bike in this beautiful weather, join the Cyclovia parent organization, Living Streets Alliance, for a kid and kid-at-heart, family-friendly bicycle ride this Saturday at 10 am. We’ll gather at Catalina Park, just north of Fourth Avenue and just south of Speedway.

Kidical Mass is back again!

Join us on Saturday, March 23rd at 10 am for a super-fun exploration of the NEW 4th Avenue/ Fontana Bicycle Boulevard!

We’ll gather at Catalina Park, then head out for a leisurely ride north along 4th Avenue towards Mansfeld Park. Depending on the pace and ability of the group, we may try to go as far as Keeling Desert Park to stop in at the FREE Bike Repair happening in time for Cyclovia Tucson on April 28th!

What is a bicycle boulevard? 

Bicycle boulevards are shared roadways that create an attractive, convenient, and comfortable cycling environment that is welcoming to cyclists of all ages and skill levels.

This ride is free and open to everyone – kids, parents, kids at heart – you don’t have to come with kids to join us, but you do have to come prepared to have a great time!

We’ll have a limited number of free youth helmets for bicycle riders without them.

Treats provided after the ride courtesy of El Grupo, Living Streets Alliance and our sponsoring partners: Outdoor Nation, Merrel and Performance Bicycles.

If you plan to attend, please RSVP with the number in your party so we are sure to get enough treats for all! You can RSVP by sending us an email at info@livingstreetsalliance.org

See you there!
