Plans for a fall Cyclovia event have been in the works since early 2013. For the first time in the five-year history of the event, Cyclovia Tucson organizers have announced a new route for the second event of 2014, which will take place on Sunday, November 2nd. “Tucson is exceptional for walking and bicycling between the months of October and April,” says Ann Chanecka, City of Tucson Bicycle and Pedestrian program Coordinator, “and we see big jumps in the number of people using these options for transportation during these months. Switching Cyclovia to a spring / fall schedule is a great way to celebrate the return of cooler weather to Tucson and encourage people to get out and give biking and walking a try.”
