Mark your calendars to join mountain-bike pioneer, bicycle advocate and snappy dresser, Gary Fisher, for a bicycle ride around Tucson later this month.
Trek Bicycles of Tucson is organizing the ride, which will start from their shop on Ft. Lowell Road and Campbell Avenue. Oct. 25 at 6 p.m.
The route and finishing location haven’t been finalized yet, but will be determined soon.
The ride will most likely finish at a local pub and give riders an opportunity to chat with Fisher.
In addition to managing his own line of bikes, Fisher has spent much of his time traveling the globe as a bicycle advocate.
Check out this classic news piece about the early days of mountain biking. Fisher makes several appearances through out the piece.

These guys not only heroes for specific contributions, but collectively for persuading and influencing thought on bikes in general…wow. Let’s get’em all here!
Click through the years. Especially the first ten.
Neat to have him here, for sure.
Hopefully the pub location will be announced prior to the ride – I’d like to hang for this.
Riding the road with a mountain bike legend? Shouldn’t this be riding an awesome trail with the mtb legend?
Word is the ride will end at Borderlands Brewery. I believe the idea behind the urban ride was to allow more people join in.
Plus, Fisher is a big advocate for using bikes for transportation.
this is a great opportunity to converse with a real visionary on bikes I have a road bike like this http://www.2wheelbikes.com/se-draft-10-dirty-gold-road-bike.html and the influence these people had on bikes like this is phenomenal
