This Week in Tucson Bicycling

Posted By on Fri, Jul 8, 2011 at 1:07 PM

Now the Rillito and Santa Cruz paths connect under the railraod tracks and Interstate 10.
The Rillito and Santa Cruz river paths are connected... unofficially. Signs saying the path is closed isn't stopping people from using it, however. Now cyclists can ride more than 20 miles without getting passed by a car. Check out what the connection looks like and see a GPS overlay of the path.

Plans to build a velodrome — a bicycle race track — in Tucson have been being kicked around for years, but the plans don't ever seem to go anywhere. The track is slated for money in the next bond election, trouble is, the election keeps getting delayed and people fear our enemies to the north might build one first. Read more about it and find out what other bikey projects are being delayed by the bond election.

According to the organizers, Tucson's first summer bike camp for kids goes great. One camper went from not being able to ride on Monday to heading out on an eight-mile jaunt on Friday. Learn more about the camp, which has a second session starting Monday.
