Pima County Public Library is proud to present its first-ever community bike ride, Tour de Biblio. The weather is perfect, so dust off your bike and go riding.

Tour de Biblio – Southside Ride
Friday, February 22 from 9:15–11:30 am
The ride will begin downtown at Joel D. Valdez Main Library then we’ll hit the streets and head over to the newly-remodeled Sam Lena-South Tucson Library. From there, we’ll pedal our way to the Santa Rosa Library, a hidden gem nestled in Barrio Santa Rosa.

Tour de Biblio – Midtown Ride
Saturday, March 9 from 9:15 am–1 pm
This second, longer event will begin at Himmel Park Library, where we’ll explore the Fontana Bike Boulevard leading to Woods Memorial Library. The tour will continue on to Martha Cooper Library and back to Himmel Park along the 3rd St/University Bike Boulevard.

Each of these events require registration, which can be completed on the Library’s website or via Infoline at (520) 791-4010.

A few things to note:
For each event the Library will provide snacks and water, a safe route, and an introduction to riding in a group.

Before you arrive:
Riders will need to bring and wear their own helmets.
Any rider under the age of 18 must ride with a parent or guardian.
A waiver will need to be signed the day of the tour by all participants.

More exciting news!
In partnership with our friends at Living Streets Alliance, the Library will host free Bike Repair clinics the day before each event: Thursday, February 21 for Southside Ride and Friday, March 8 for Midtown Ride. They’ll bring the tools and replacement parts, you bring the bike that needs help. RSVP to colby@livingstreetsalliance.org.
