Bees at Camino de Oeste and Ironwood Hills

I just got word from a Tucson cyclist on Twitter, that there is a swarm of angry bees out near Ironwood Hills and Camino de Oeste.

Apparently, the bees followed him on his bike while riding south and stung him. He seems to have gotten away from most of them and it OK. Keep an eye out for them if you are in the area.

This post also brings up another idea I’ve been thinking about.

I’ve been approached about creating an alert system for Tucson cyclists to get info brief tidbits of info out to the community quickly. It could be used to warn cyclists about bees or police stings, construction alerts, lots of thing. What do you think? Is that something you would interested in?

I am thinking it would go beyond a post and twitter update. I like the idea of a text message and perhaps an email too. Maybe allow people to sign up with which way they would like to be notified?

Sounds like a good idea. How would you get the info out? Blog post? Twitter? Text alerts?

Great idea. Keep it simple and fast, so it will only take a minute to read or post to.
