There are no nearby structures or buildings for shelter, but your car is nearby so you make a run for it. After all, the tires will protect you from lightning strikes, right?Wrong.It's an idea that was first thought of in the late 1800s, on bicycles.

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Tucsonans will gather at several places across Southern Arizona on Saturday to commemorate the January 8 shooting.

All day there will be hikes, bike rides and dancing to bring the community together, much like three years, just days after the shooting.

There will be 17 events at 14 different locations. The main event will take place at Armory Park and includes free admission into the children's museum. It will be held from noon until 3 p.m. and Congressman Ron Barber is expected to speak.

On the Northwest side, Tucsonans will honor Christina Taylor Green with a "Stroll and Roll" at her memorial park. That's near Shannon and Magee from 8:30 a.m. until 11 a.m.

On the opposite side of town, a hike, mountain bike, or horseback ride is taking place at the Gabe Zimmerman off marsh Station, just southeast of Tucson. The event kicks off at 9:30 a.m. and goes until noon.

Gabe Zimmerman's father started this event as a way families can come together and be active.
