Southern Arizona Report: April

Perimeter Bicycling was awarded the grant to administrate the Pima Regional Middle School Bicycle and Pedestrian Program. I will be the manager much like I do for our current Bike Ambassador program. This is a Safe Routes to Schools curriculum model, much like the elementary school program already in existence, but with middle school students as the target age.
We will hire more LCI’s to teach the classes in the school day, in after school programs or on weekends, depending on the school’s needs and schedule.

We are ready to package the diversion program to use as a model for other cities. I will be happy to present to any group with a power point and hand outs.

Tucson is going to have its first Ciclovia on April 18. I have been invited to send some bike patrol to the event, and will be sending 5 or so to help out during the day. SafeKids Tucson is providing helmets for the event and we will have helmet fitters on hand to make sure helmets are worn properly.

El Tour de Phoenix was a great success. 1400 riders, a new record.
