Cyclovia Tucson 2019 + National Poetry Month

April 7, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

For the first time ever, Living Streets Alliance, the organization home to Cyclovia Tucson, is partnering with local literacy and poetry organizations, including the University of Arizona’s Poetry Center, Urban Poetry Pollinators, Tucson Poet Laureate TC Tolbert, Stories that Soar, Bookman’s, Tucson Youth Poetry Slam, and the Arts Foundation for Southern Arizona to co-celebrate National Poetry Month as part of the next Cyclovia Tucson event on Sunday, April 7th from 9am to 3pm.

The three-mile long route, which includes a stop at the University of Arizona’s Poetry Center, will be packed with events and activities all aimed at achieving a singular goal: all 40,000 people expected to attend Cyclovia Tucson will experience poetry in some way. Whether that experience includes reading chalked poetry on the street, creating bike-haikus (bi-kus) with poets, listening to poetry as spoken word or amplified from behind a roving poetry-equipped audio bicycle, to screen printing your own poetry refrigerator magnet-style onto t-shirts, to experiencing the great Hall of Giants at the Poetry Center celebrating the lives and works of poetry greats, to sampling Emily Dickinson’s personal gingerbread recipe, is up to each individual but all of these activities and so many more will line the route.

Information about the event including how to participate can be found at cycloviatucson.org or on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter @CycloviaTucson, or by calling 520-261-8777. Cyclovia Tucson is presented by Banner—University Medicine with support from the City of Tucson, Cigna, the University of Arizona Poetry Center and the Pima County Clean Air Program. It is a free, public event and while many people ride bicycles, participants can also walk, skate, use wheelchairs, push strollers, and use any non-motorized form of transportation they wish to slow down, take in the sights, and experience the city from a new perspective, outside of car. Cyclovia Tucson is a biannual event that moves the route around to different parts of the city, bringing the experience to people’s doorsteps.

Tucson, AZ 85719 United States

We continue our Collin Forbes Memorial Bike-In Movie Series with Wadjda the first feature film shot entirely in Saudi Arabia and the first feature-length film made by a female Saudi director.

Movie synopsis: Wadjda is a 10-year-old girl living in a suburb of Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia. Although she lives in a conservative world, Wadjda is fun loving, entrepreneurial and always pushing the boundaries of what she can get away with. After a fight with her friend Abdullah, a neighborhood boy she shouldn’t be playing with, Wadjda sees a beautiful green bicycle for sale. She wants the bicycle desperately so that she can beat Abdullah in a race. But Wadjda’s mother won’t allow it, fearing repercussions from a society that sees bicycles as dangerous to a girl’s virtue. So Wadjda decides to try and raise the money herself.

VIEW TRAILER

If this is your first time joining us for the Bike-In movie series, here’s what to expect: The Estate of local cycling advocate Collin Forbes donated a completely portable large-screen, outdoor movie set-up that allows us to bike around to different locations around town to show you great bike-themed movies in public places, like parks. Every part of the movie set-up is portable and off the grid.

Can you see the movie? Yes. It is projected on a giant, 11-foot wide screen.

Can you hear the movie? Yes. We bring portable loud speakers.

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!

Bike-In Movie “Rango” at Las Milpitas Community Farm!

April 26, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
2405 S. Cottonwood Lane, 2405 S. Cottonwood Lane
Tucson, AZ 85713

Bike along the Santa Cruz River Paseo de las Iglesias to Las Milpitas Community Farm for a family screening of Rango!

FRIDAY, APRIL 26 at 6:30 PM

This screening will take place outdoors at Las Milpitas Community Farm, 2405 S Cottonwood Ln, Tucson, AZ 85713. Please bring your own seating (chairs and blankets). Geronimo’s Revenge food truck will be on site starting at 6:30pm. Suggested donation is $5 per family, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

This event is part of the Loft Cinema’s Science on Screen, an initiative of the Coolidge Corner Theatre, in partnership with the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. It is a collaboration of the Loft Cinema, Las Milpitas Community Farm of the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona, and Pima County Food Alliance (PCFA).

Featuring an introduction by Sergio Avila-Villegas, Conservation Research Scientist and Regional Outdoors Coordinator for the Sierra Club. Film introduction begins at 6:30pm; film begins by 7:00pm.

In the animated action/comedy Rango, Johnny Depp provides the voice of the title character, a kooky pet chameleon who gets tossed into a wild and raucous western town in desperate need of a hero. Through a series of comical misadventures, Rango is appointed sheriff of this lawless outpost (a town so tough it’s just called “Dirt”), but the question is: can one unprepared and completely unqualified chameleon possibly change this little town’s future for the better? Filled with goofy characters, humorous action and comical parodies of classic Spaghetti Westerns, Rango is an animated treat for the whole family.

Sergio Avila-Villegas is the Regional Outdoors Coordinator for the Sierra Club. He is responsible for designing and directing volunteer recruitment and training programs that support and enhance Sierra Club local level outdoors programming. His goal is to increase the number and diversity of people connected to nature throughout the states of Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah and Nevada. Previously, Sergio worked as a Conservation Research Scientist with the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, where he led collaborative efforts on connectivity for wildlife, habitat restoration, education and interpretation in the Sonoran Desert region of Sonora, Baja California and Arizona. Sergio graduated from the University of Baja California with a Master’s degree in Arid Lands Management, and the University of Aguascalientes with a B.S. in Biology. For over sixteen years, Sergio has gained extensive training and experience working in remote areas of northwest Mexico and the U.S. southwest on wildlife conservation and research, and on challenges related to wildlife movement across the US-Mexico border.

Free Bike Valet at the Oro Valley Farmers Market

April 27, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
Oro Valley Farmers Market, 10901 N Oracle Rd
Oro Valley, 85737 United States

At first thought, the idea of biking to the farmers market on a sunny April morning seems quite idyllic. However, the logistics––like how to store your food, keep it cool, and get a dozen pastured eggs home safely––can seem daunting. With a bit of forethought and planning, you can bike to and from the market with little hassle or concern.

HERE’S WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

  • Bike panniers or a large backpack
  • Reusable bags
  • Ice packs, for safely transporting meat and cheese
  • Tea towel
  • Tupperware container

Begin your preparation at home. Use the “Fresh at the Market” list on our website to make a list of what you need at the market and organize the items by category: produce, meat, dairy, dry goods, etc. Once you have a tentative idea of what you’re getting at the market, you can begin to plan the best way to transport everything safely and efficiently.

The easiest way to transport goods to and from the market on two wheels is with bike panniers, which prevent you from having to carry a heavy bag on your back; however, a large backpack can serve your needs sufficiently. Be sure to bring a reusable bag or two to gather your goods as you make your way through the market. Once you’ve collected everything you need for a delicious week of local meals, take a few minutes to step away from the market festivities and repack your bags for the ride home.

To safely transport cold-storage items like meat and cheese, pack a few frozen ice packs in your bag and use them to keep these items cool on your journey home from the market. Store these highly perishable items, along with ice packs, at the bottom of your bag. Protect fragile items, like eggs and tomatoes, from breaking and bruising by wrapping a kitchen towel or t-shirt around egg cartons and packing delicate produce in a lidded container. Store these items at the top of your bag and ensure that no heavy items are placed on top of them. Bumps in the road can prove to be a bigger threat to delicate foods, so take The Loop––and extensive and well-paved bike path––for as much of your ride as possible. Once you experience how easy it is to bike to the farmers market (and back), you’ll want to do it every week! Happy riding!
