IMPORTANT: AS OF 9/28/12 THE WALKING TOUR IS FULL!
Architecture on Wheels is back by popular demand! In fall of 2011 we hosted our first Architecture on Wheels in partnership with the American Institute of Architects’ (AIA) annual “Architecture Week”. Last year’s route explored the architecture of a number of historic neighborhoods in downtown Tucson, guided by local experts on bicycle.
This year, we’re thrilled to be expanding the event, providing THREE guided bicycle tours and one walking tour, centered around Arizona’s Centennial – the theme of this years’ Architecture Week. The tours will explore buildings constructed in or before 1912 in Armory Park, El Presidio, West University, and along N. Toole Avenue. Here’s the rundown:
Bicycle Tour #1: Downtown & Armory Park, lead by Jennifer Levstik & Jonathon Mabry
Bicycle Tour #2: El Presidio, led by Brooks Jeffery
Bicycle Tour #3: West University, lead by Demion Clinco
Walking Tour: Warehouse District, lead by Corky Poster (NOTE: THIS TOUR IS FULL AS OF 9/28/12)
This event is FREE and open to the public. Tours will start at the Historic Train Depot and last roughly 1-1.5 hours. Living Streets Alliance members will receive free refreshments, so join today! We will have a sag team on hand to remedy any minor bicycle troubles (like a flat tire or rusty chain). Lastly, remember to bring a hat and water — we are in the desert, after all.
