Welcome to October, the start of the busy bicycle season in the Old Pueblo.
Here at Bicycle Tucson, we’ll keep you up-to-date with the biggest and best upcoming events starting with the Bike to Build ride to benefit Habitat for Humanity.
The Bike to Build will take place on Saturday Oct. 17 at 6 a.m. and includes rides from 10 miles to 60 miles and even a 30-mile mountain bike ride.
Here’s a description from Habitat for Humanity:
Bike to Build will be held “rain or shine”. Check in will begin at 6am at 7077 S. Camino de Albergue, near the Julian Wash segment of the loop. Riders will roll out at 6:30 p.m., in staggered waves. Each registered participant will receive a T-Shirt and water bottle, and a cue sheet and map with detailed directions. Support stations will be provided along all routes. All bikers will receive breakfast and all builders will also receive lunch.
Registration is $35* and is limited to the first 120 people. If you would like to ride only, the fee is $25* (*Children under the age of 8 ride free with an adult).
Thank you to our amazing supporters. El Grupo will be joining us on the rides, providing bike valet service post ride and building with youth under the age of 16. Pre ride coffee will be provided by Peddler on the Path, lunch will be sponsored by Saguaro Corners, and Borderlands will be hosting a Beer Garden after the biking and building are complete (I.D.’s are required and will be checked).
