I Want To Ride My Bicycle
It is time for everyone to enjoy the 2nd annual Cyclovia event on Sunday March 27th. Enjoy a 5-mile course downtown where the streets will be free of cars and filled with people biking, walking, skating, etc. To help put you in the mood, here are a few bike oriented titles.
For the young ones, Duck on a Bike by David Shannon will convince everyone (including all the animals at the farm) to ride bikes.
Teens will enjoy Sarah Dessen's Along for the Ride. It's never too late to learn how to ride a bike, and add in a little romance to make the lessons a lot more enjoyable.
Finally, adults who grew up with the Talking Heads will appreciate Bicycle Diaries by David Byrne. Byrne takes a folding bike on tour and explores cities around the world from the street. He also braves New York City on a bike as his regular mode of transportation. Inspiring stories.
So hop on your bike and head downtown on Sunday March 27th. For more information, check out cycloviatucson.org
