Bike count to be done October 21-23

Posted: Updated:

The first-ever regional bike count will take place in the Tucson area October 21st through the 23rd. Conducted by the Pima Association of Governments (PAG) in conjunction with the Tucson-Pima County Bicycle Advisory Committee and the Greater Arizona Bicycling Association, the count will be done during commute times over the 3-day period.

The Tucson region was recently recognized as one of the premier Bicycle Friendly Communities in the country by the League of American Bicyclists. "Our commitment to bicycling has made our region a role model for other communities aspiring to provide the facilities and programs necessary to make cycling a viable alternate mode, and a fun and safe recreational activity," said PAG Executive Director Gary Hayes.
