Hottest Day of the Year Ride 

We can't confirm that Saturday, June 28, will be the hottest day of the year, but BICAS is throwing caution to the sun and is hosting a Tucson-style beach party called the Hottest Day of the Year Ride. That means plenty of sun, sand and waves—in the pool, that is.

BICAS (Bicycle Inter-Community Art & Salvage) is in its 25th year and "promotes education, art and a healthy environment, as well as continuing to provide the bicycle as a mode of transportation to all members of the Tucson community." They seek to raise funds to purchase a permanent location.

The event starts at BICAS (44 W. Sixth St.) at 10:30 a.m. Bicyclists will ride an easy-paced 15 miles heading south onto the Aviation bike route, looping around the Santa Cruz River Trail and ending at the Melo Park pool and waterslide (1100 W. Fresno St.) with a picnic. Registration includes food, drink, a water bottle and pool entry. Tickets range from $25 to $50, with a $10 fee added on the day of the event. A "Not to Get Fried" registration skips the ride and includes the pool party only. Pre-registration is encouraged at bicas.org.
