Mike McKisson runs TucsonVelo.com, a great site covering local cycling news. Once a week, he recaps the biggest local two-wheel, pedal-powered news for The Range.

  • The United States' most influential bicycle advocate will be in Tucson starting Sunday to lobby city officials and motivate cyclists to make Tucson better for bicycling. Check out what he has planned and when you can meet him.
  • Pima County is moving ahead with a paving project that will make it easier for cyclists to navigate the Rillito River path, but neighborhood residents aren't totally happy about it. Read more about it here.
  • The Tucson Police Department is tracking how many citations they are giving out as part of their special bicycle and pedestrian enforcement. About 300 cyclists, pedestrians and drivers were cited in April. Click here to find out what they were cited for.
  • The water line issue on West Congress Avenue made it possible for the city to add a few hundred yards of bike lanes. They are one step closer to having bike infrastructure from the Rincon Mountains to the Tucson Mountains. Check out where they added the lanes and what's left to complete.
