Tucson's two-wheeled news source

Wrap up 2010 and ring in the new year with a ride

Cyclovia was one of my favorite events of the year. It also happened to be on the same day as the GABA Bike Swap, Tucson Bike Beautiful and the New Belgium Urban Assault, which made for a really long day.

I created Tucson Velo in January of last year. The first article went up on January 11 and this post is No. 735.

I’ve covered major events to BAC meetings and everything in between.

I’ve tried new things and learned a lot in this past year and am hopeful 2011 will be even better. Thanks so much to you all for reading and thanks to the sponsors who help make the site possible.

Happy New Year!

Congrats on the site, Michael. I ditto what Rob, Colby and Psibley said. My favorite story was about you losing weight by cycling. My second fave was your wedding anniversary date by bike story. All the best to you, your family, and all your readers in 2011!

What is Tucson Bike Beautiful? I've been to the others mentioned. Slipped on some ice this morning. Pretty cool to be out riding in the cold. However, when your bike slips on ice you put your foot down instinctively then your foot slips on ice too. Eek!
