Join the Mayor in riding a bike to work

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Ditch the car and hop on the bike, today is 'Bike to Work Day' and it is part of a month of events designed to encourage people to get out and about on two wheels.

There are events happening all over Tucson that cater to cyclists Wednesday morning.  One such event is happening at the Main Library downtown. City of Tucson and Pima County workers will be serving up breakfast to those who are riding their bicycles to work or school this morning.

It is part of Pedal the Pueblo, getting people to explore the city on two wheels. Those who do stop by for coffee and a bit to eat will notice several changes to the downtown area, especially those who park their bike downtown. 

Artistic bike racks are finally being installed outside the library, after the old ones were removed a while ago.  When all of the new racks are installed those who use them will notice a cool message. 

Tucson's Mayor Jonathan Rothschild will also be participating in the bike to work day today.  He will begin his ride at the University of Arizona, (meet by the flagpole just west of Old Main, near Park and University), at 7 a.m., the group will then make its way downtown along the modern streetcar route. 

Rothschild is encouraging those in the area to come down and join him on his ride.
