Photos: 2013 Cyclovia Tucson I

This cow bike was one of many unique bikes at the first 2013 Cyclovia Tucson. A second event with a new route will take place on April 28.

This cow bike was one of many unique bikes at the first 2013 Cyclovia Tucson. A second event with a new route will take place on April 28.

What a difference a year makes. A year ago the cold and rain dampened the spirits of the few people who attempted to ride the 2012 Cyclovia Tucson.

The weather cooperated this year and thousands of bicyclists, pedestrians and even a mechanical cow hit the streets in downtown and South Tucson.

Cyclovia organizer Kylie Walzak said via text message that the event went flawlessly.

She said they did not yet have an estimate of the number of people who participated in the event.

Representatives from Pima Association of Governments were at various points along the route counting the traffic and surveying participants.

Walzak said they wouldn’t get the tally until later today at the earliest.

Love Cyclovia but dear god 1) Please fix the cyclovia website - it makes me dizzy just looking at it and 2) please remind people that walking/running a dog on hot pavement/concrete injures their paws! I was horrified at the number of people who had their dogs out on the blacktop at the first 2013 cyclovia.
