Getting to campus is easier and cheaper on a bike.
The University of Arizona is back in session and there is no day better than the first day of classes to remind people why bike commuting is better than driving. Check out the photos of people on bikes and the traffic you bypass when riding a bike.

Another bakfiets (That's box bike in dutch) is coming to Tucson. See what a bakfiets looks like and how it can haul two kids and a bunch of groceries and more.
