Bike Fest Bike-In Movie Series, “Breaking Away”

The Bike Fest Bike-In Movie Series is BACK and kicks off with “Breaking Away” – a classic story of trying to find your way and your place in your community in that trying summer after high school graduation. Cutters!

Movie synopsis: Dave (Dennis Christopher), one of four friends growing up in the small college town of Bloomington, IN, is obsessed with competitive bicycle racing. Adventures ensue as Dave searches for his place in the town and biking community.

This movie is from 1979 and features tight jeans and a really young Dennis Quaid (does anyone else think Tucson’s Tom McNamara looks like Dennis Quaid??). It’s awesome.

If this is your first time joining the Bike Fest Bike-In movie series here’s what to expect:
Local cycling advocates Collin Forbes and David Forbes (not related) have a completely portable large-screen, outdoor movie set-up that they bike around to different locations around town to show you great cycling-themed movies in unique, public places, like parks. Every part of the movie set-up is “wireless” meaning they don’t even need electricity to make it all happen. Can you see the movie? Yes. It is projected on a giant, 11-foot wide screen. Can you hear the movie? Yes. David Forbes bring loud speakers, mounted to his bike.

You will need to bring: a blanket or something comfortable to sit on, snacks (some to share is nice too), and anything else you need to be comfortable. Last year, the organizers provided some portable camping stoves to make Jiffy Pop which will happen again this year.

This is truly a unique, fun, community-minded series of events you won’t want to miss. Tell all your friends and come find the Bike-In movie in a park near you!

12th Annual Bicycle Scavenger Hunt

El Grupo presents its 12th Annual Bicycle Scavenger Hunt, brought to you by New Belgium Brewing, as a fundraiser to support its mission of empowering youth through bicycles on Saturday, April 4th, 2015!

The super fun, challenging and yet also family-friendly event will start at 9am at El Grupo’s new clubhouse near downtown at 600 N. 9th Ave.

You bring your bike (and friends!). We will give you a map of the downtown area. On the back you will find 10 riddles to solve and 10 objects to find. You will race, ride or gallop (at your chosen pace!) within a 3 mile radius of downtown searching for the objects, tackling feats of strength and stupidity, and learning about obscure parts in downtown Tucson you never knew existed!

Family distance will include only 5 locations within a 1.5 mile radius. With all riddles solved, hidden locations found, and scavenged objects in hand, you will return, race, dash to the finish for your team’s time and some good ol’ celebrations….drink and lunch included in registration. Celebrate your success in the beer garden! There will also be a raffle with prizes from awesome local businesses, including a “Fat Tire” bike from New Belgium! Don’t forget your wallet!! Prizes and original handmade trophies for fastest 2 person and 3-person teams (female, male & co-ed) and fastest family. All participants receive custom “goodie” bag.

Register as individuals, but the Hunt must be tackled in duos or trios (male, female or co-ed). This is for those who are looking for a challenge and some serious fun. Expect to ride 15-25 miles in 1.5-2.5 hours, depending on your street smarts, speed and determination.

Youth under 18 riding in teams of two or three…only $15 for you!

Family distance riders can expect to ride 5-8 miles in 1.5-2 hours, depending on your street smarts, speed and determination. A “Family” must contain at least one individual under 12 years old.

You’ll need to register for this event, find out how here.

Wild West Cargo & Utility Bike Cyclovia Cleanup & After-party

Calling all haulers! It’s a wild west trash round up! Bring out the packs, racks, bags, crates, trailers, ropes, hats, boots, chaps, etc. and help us keep Cyclovia a good neighbor like decent folk. We’ll be sweeping the route from north to south, ending at the post-Cyclovia event from 3pm to 5pm. If that’s not enough for you, we’ll just head back uptown until we run out of steam!

Prize for best outfit and/or bike decorations and biggest haul of trash to be awarded by mob vote! (Warning: if the cowpoke with the fully articulated steer skeleton bike happens to show up, you better have your game face on!) (We’re not sure how many bags of trash he can get on that thing though…)

(City slickers cordially invited also; you are most welcome if you’re not the western type or your local thrift outlet suddenly closes! We promise to keep the country music to a dull roar ;)

Picnic Dinner Bike Ride: Mission Garden

A leisurely ride along the Santa Cruz River path to a BYO picnic dinner in the Mission Gardens.
We’ll stop at the Mercado on the way so if you didn’t pack a dinner you can pick up some tasty takeout from Seis Kitchen or Blu. From there we’ll continue on to the Mission Gardens, a re-creation of the Spanish Colonial walled garden that was part of Tucson’s historic San Agustin Mission.

Ride leader Donna Tang has arranged for special evening access to the Gardens and will talk about the 4100 year history of food and agriculture along the Santa Cruz River, and how the Gardens tell that story.

We’ll start at Juhan Park, located at Grant Road and the Santa Cruz River (see map). It’s 4.2 miles one way to Mission Gardens.

Bike Fest FINAL Bike-In Movie of the Series, “Goonies”

The Bike Fest Bike-In Movie Series concludes with pirates, rich stuff, Cyndi Lauper and BMX bikes. It’s the Brat Pack’s finest adventure, “The Goonies”! And, if you’ve never been to the Franklin “Docks” before – this is your chance! This elevated platform in the heart of downtown use to be home to rows of warehouses where goods coming in off the Union Pacific Railroad were unloaded and stored. But don’t worry, we will pause the movie when the trains go by. Yay!!

Movie Synopsis (really? you haven’t seen “The Goonies”?): In order to save their home from foreclosure, a group of misfits set out to find a pirate’s ancient treasure.

If this is your first time joining the Bike Fest Bike-In movie series here’s what to expect:
Local cycling advocates Collin Forbes and David Forbes (not related) have a completely portable large-screen, outdoor movie set-up that they bike around to different locations around town to show you great cycling-themed movies in unique, public places, like parks. Every part of the movie set-up is “wireless” meaning they don’t even need electricity to make it all happen. Can you see the movie? Yes. It is projected on a giant, 11-foot wide screen. Can you hear the movie? Yes. David Forbes bring loud speakers, mounted to his bike.

You will need to bring: a blanket or something comfortable to sit on, snacks (some to share is nice too), and anything else you need to be comfortable. Last year, the organizers provided some portable camping stoves to make Jiffy Pop which will happen again this year.

This is truly a unique, fun, community-minded series of events you won’t want to miss. Tell all your friends and come find the Bike-In movie in a park near you!

Adventure Bike Ride: El Paso and Southwestern Railroad Right of Way

Come explore the historic railroad right of way between Barrio Anita and Arizona Feeds at S 6th and E 37th.
The El Paso and Southwestern Railroad ran from El Paso into Tucson from 1912 until 1924. The tracks are gone but the dirt right of way is mostly intact, and there are plans to develop it into a walkable, bikeable greenway park. In fact, the City of South Tucson is in the process of acquiring the right away to make this project happen with money from the Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) and support from Pima County and the Trust for Public Lands. Construction on the El Paso & Southwestern Greenway could begin as soon as next year, and when it is completed it will link St. Mary’s Road at I-10 all the way to the Kino Baseball Park on a car-free path!

THIS IS AN ADVENTURE RIDE ON AN UNEXPLORED COURSE!
We might have to backtrack, or get off and lift bikes over fencing or something. OK?

Come prepared! We will be off pavement all the time. Best to be on a bike with wider tires and puncture resistant tubes. We’ll meet at Ordinary Bike Shop so riders can stock up on puncture resistant tubes or whatever else they might need for the ride, then ride over to Barrio Anita where the Railroad Right of Way starts.
We’ll finish up conveniently close to Pico de Gallo where we can fill our tanks with some of Tucson’s best tacos.

Here’s a peek at the general route:
