Update: Here is the Urban Loop map, which was requested by Tucson Velo reader Red Star.
I finally got around to scanning a few documents from the Tucson-Pima County Bicycle Advisory Committee meeting last week.
The first is a brief memo sent to Chuck Huckelberry about the Urban Loop project. I didn’t include the spread sheet because it was too big to fit in my scanner.
The second is the 2009 Bike Ambassador Annual Report. According to the document, the program taught 85 classes in various bike-related skills. 637 people attended one f the skills classes, but that number does not include in-school education.
In 2009 71 bike rodeos, a program that teaches kids about bicycles and bicycle safety, were taught at 27 schools for a total of 71 classes. Pima County estimates they taught just over 1750 students. Community bicycle rodeo classes were also taught at other locations around Tucson. In total, youth classes were taught at 34 different locations and reached 2,279 children.
Lastly, a reader mentioned in the comments if this article, that the city was trying out a new way to report road hazards. The program is apparently up and running. They teamed up with a site called SeeClickFix.com to allow people to report issue through their computer or various cell phone applications.
It seems to work, but there are a lot of open pot hole requests and it appears only one has been filled about three months ago.
