Just a reminder. 6th and 6th, 10 AM. If you don’t have a team it is always easy to join one at the start (or you can ride alone if you prefer). There’s room on our team too, if you think you can be competitive enough to join us. We intend [...]Read More..>>
When you run a blog you learn a lot about internet scams. I get numerous new posts to this Website every day from people who are trying to increase their Google ranking by inserting a link to their own Website onto mine. The way it works is they post a comment with a [...]Read More..>>

The ordinance would prohibit marijuana dispensaries (should Proposition 203 pass) within a 1000-foot buffer around any school, library, church, child-care facility, and park.

I am told that he got schooled a little bit in [...]
I do not live in her district, but I have worked with Nancy Young Wright on bicycle issues and I found her to be extremely intelligent and thoughtful. I don’t know that she is a bicyclist, but she is very much interested in making her district and all of Tucson as bicycle-friendly as possible. [...]Read More..>>
The El Grupo Scavenger Hunt is my second-favorite event of the year, surpassed only by the BICAS Art Auction.
