Whimsical Bike Count #4 – Lycra & Spandex
July 30, 2015 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm
More and more Americans are riding their bikes as part of their everyday lives as a means of transportation, wearing their normal, everyday clothes, without thinking much about it.
The national advocacy organization People for Bikes is on a quest to determine the “everyday biking” capital of the U.S. through a series of monthly bike counts. This competition between 10 cities is all about “fun” and “whimsy” unlike “serious” and “scientific” initiatives to count bikes.
Each month’s count has a separate theme and July is the month of people riding in LYCRA or SPANDEX. Spandex and everyday biking?!? Just remember the 80s when everyday everything was wrapped in spandex! This is a perfect occasion to dive into the deepest corner of your closet and pull out that very special piece of neon clothing.
RSVP here at our Facebook event.
Running up the score is highly encouraged, so ride by our count location at the corner of 4th Avenue and University Boulevard and help us declare Tucson the best place for #everdaybiking!
Here’s what’s in store for the upcoming months:
August: # of kids riding
September: # of people riding in business attire
October: # of people riding in Halloween costumes
November: # of people riding who have beards
And, in case you missed it, here’s our post about Tucson taking top honors in June’s #EverydayBikingChallenge.
