Paying tribute Ride of Silence 2017

Amazing Grace … Bag pipes … A solemn and haunting start to the 2017 Tucson Ride of Silence. This annual event, hosted by Look Save a Life and GABA, met at Reid Park. Survivors and family were among those who spoke or rode in the police escorted 10 mile ride through the heart of Tucson. […]

Cyclovia Success

Cyclovia was a ‘magical’ event with good food and lots of local arts and culture to explore. The blocked off streets made it easy and fun to ride around.
