Good turnout for first monthly family-friendly ride

About 20 people, including six kids, showed up for the Living Streets Alliance’s first family-friendly ride. It’s something the organizers plan on hosting on the last Saturday of every month.

The Alliance’s Emily Yetman said she thought the first ride was a success and would use what they learned to improve future rides.

They might consider moving the start location around the city to show families in different parts of the region how they can get to various attractions by bicycle and safe roads.

Check out the video below to get a feel for what the ride was like.

Bummed I missed it but looking forward to joining in - hope to bring my granddaughter along in the bike trailer in a few months too!

I'd hate, during during a day of career-building, to cynically ignore the area, that's all.

"I'll go ride that stretch if it makes you feel better." Sluggh, Red Star doesn't understand your comment. Explanation, please. What are trying to say?

Interesting that they exited from Aviation Bikeway at 18th Street. They neatly stepped around much of the graffiti, litter, and homeless people on the next segment of the bikeway. They avoided many examples of City of Tucson/Pima county/RTA neglect. Given the sly confident indifference to their very own career-building projects, are you able to see a way for cynically ignored areas to improve if they are avoided? Can LSA?
