Mountain biking legend Gary Fisher was in town this week to help raise money for Living Street Alliance. He led a community bike ride with hundreds of Tucsonans and said officials needed to to more to encourage people to ride their bikes for transportation.

Instead of adding bike racks when people have to lock to a hand rail because there isn't enough bike parking, the UA adds a sign threatening impoundment and fines. Check out the photos.

Advocacy really can work. Lots of cyclists worked with Trader Joe's last year when they hampered bike parking at their store. A year later, the situation is vastly improved.

It's always great when someone gets their stolen bike back. Find out how one TucsonVelo reader got his back and where it was spotted.
