Cyclovia Tucson, is going to happen regardless of whatever the weather brings. Event organizer Emily Yetman sent out an email yesterday assuring riders that the event would take place.

Yetman said the volunteers and police would be in place to close the roads allowing people to cruise the route. Here’s what she wrote:

“The answer is YES, Cyclovia will happen on Sunday come rain or shine.  (We’ll keep our fingers crossed for the latter.)  Our many community partners are on board and will be there to offer you fun activities and information; the streets will be closed; our volunteers are set to go, and so are we!  Come on out and join us!!!”
