Come to a Bicycle Party in downtown Tucson hosted by Grey's Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey, pro cyclist Tom Danielson, and Bicycling Magazine editor-in-chief Peter Flax. "Ride on Tucson" will take place on Sunday, January 20, 1-4 p.m., in the Armory Park neighborhood.
Dempsey and Danielson hatched the idea to celebrate the great bicycling community in Tucson and Pima County. The routewill be closed to vehicle traffic so people of all ages and abilities can ride around one of Tucson's oldest neighborhoods. Armory Park will host music, including Jovert, Tucson High Magnet School's steel drum band, and the Determined Luddites. Other festivities will take place throughout the afternoon.
Ride the 2.2-mile route as many times as you want, meet some new bicycling friends, and pick up event posters signed by Dempsey and Danielson. If your bike isn't ready to ride, mechanics will be on hand to fix flat tires and do other minor repairs. Helmets are required. Bikes are waterproof, so "Ride on Tucson" will happen rain or shine! If you ride, you might be featured in upcoming Bicycling Magazine videos and articles.
