Here are a few things that I came across this week, but didn’t get to post about.

Landon a TucsonVelo reader asked a while back about what kind of bike infrastructure would be included in the construction that was occurring on Sunrise between Craycroft and Kolb as well as Oracle north of Ina.

Matt Zoll, Pima County’s bike and pedestrian program manager, wrote in email that the section on Sunrise would be standard six-foot bike lanes.

As for the construction on Oracle, Zoll wrote, “For Oracle the lanes will range from about 6 feet wide to 12 feet wide, but they aren’t technically bike lanes and instead are paved shoulders. ADOT doesn’t sign or mark bike lanes unless a local jurisdiction takes them over for maintenance. That occurs some times but I don’t believe any of the local jurisdictions will do so for Oracle. We still however have that space to bike in so it helps a great deal and Oracle is quite popular for cycling.”


I received an email about a few cyclists trying to organize a cleanup of the bike church on Sunday. They are meeting at 9 a.m. on Sunday and should be done by 11 a.m. The bike church is located just north of Main and 6th Street.


I followed up recently with Bill Davidson, the University of Arizona Parking and Transportation’s marketing manager about the bike share program they started.

Davidson said the program is beginning to take off.

We have gone from a few loaners in November to over 100 in the month of March,” Davidson wrote. “The program is going well. The bikes are becoming very popular. The plan is to expand this fall with more bikes and more locations.”
