Good news for people who like to creep on bearded dudes on bikes all day, every day: you're right where you need to be to maximize your creepability. That's because People for Bikes released the results of their newest cycling statistics, and Tucson ranks highest on both bearded bikers and everyday cycling.

According to the organization, which acts as an advocacy network for cycling industry professionals and millions of riders, Tucson is a totally awesome place to take short trips to get around town every day (i.e. commuting) due to its high numbers of costumed, bearded, skirted and other unique, casual riding styles over the last year. 

With support from contributors and counters across the country, these stats were compiled to draw attention to cycling as a mode of casual or utilitarian transportation. Tucson was closest in the rankings with Memphis, which ranked a few points behind. However, Tucson more than doubled the ranked score of Chicago, Portland, Seattle, Denver and more, making them look dumb for even trying. Get it, Tucson. 

Oh, and while you're jazzed on biking in Tucson, just thought it'd be pertinent to remind y'all about the BICAS Art Auction that's taking place this weekend to raise money for an organization that helps many low-income individuals get mobile and empowers anyone with the information they need to ride, build and maintain a bicycle in town. Now go get on your bike and buy some art.
