Cyclists can honor and remember There and Back Bicycles owner Steve Vihel by riding to his shop for breakfast tomorrow from 7- 10 a.m.

Vihel, who prided himself on his lack of spandex, saw bicycles as a fun way to get around.

In that vein, he started the bike-to-work breakfasts to encourage people to ride their bikes to work or school.

This breakfast however is about remembering Steve, who died on Dec. 1 after a battle with a heart defect.

People who are interested can organize mini bike rides to the shop.

I will lead a ride from Mountain Avenue and Limberlost Road near the Rillito River Path at 7:30 a.m. to the shop.

Feel free to join in along the way or host your own ride by leaving a comment on the official event page about what time you will be leaving to head to There and Back Bikes.

There will be bagels, pancakes, coffee and juice at the breakfast.

This will also be one last opportunity to purchase a raffle ticket for the bicycle raffle. Proceeds will help cover Steve’s funeral costs.
