The first event of Tucson’s Bike Fest was a bike ride for beginning cyclists organized by the DooDah Road Club.
Cyclists met at Maynard’s market downtown. Because of errors online and in a print magazine, a few cyclists, including myself, showed up at 8 a.m. The ride didn’t officially start until 9 a.m., but the four of us went for a short ride to pass the time.
The DooDah ride included stretches on the Aviation path, Highland Avenue, University Boulevard and then meandered though the historic neighborhoods in downtown Tucson. The loop was about 10.5 miles.
Officials from the DooDah club said they plan on hosting the ride on the first Sunday of every month.
