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.

Today is the last day to vote in the bikey photo contest. Want to help determine a winner? Vote.

The on again, off again, neighborhood BMX park appears to a go for real this time. Check out the details.

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.

Through a competitive selection process, a local advocacy group was chosen to host the first Action 2020 workshop designed to help governments and groups secure funds for bike and pedestrian projects. Learn more about the event.

The bicycling community has teamed up with a class at UA's Eller business school to determine the economic impact bicycling has on the region. Find out why the group needs your help.
