Tucson peeps: There's a new ride event in downtown next weekend!

Tucson Velo website announced a community ride in downtown Tucson being hosted by actor Patrick Dempsey (of Grey's Anatomy and Can't Buy Me Love (a film made in Tucson) fame and pro cyclist Tom Danielson.  The ride, dubbed "Ride On, Tucson!", is set for Sunday, January 20, 2013 from 1 - 4 PM.

The route is shown below:

The route is approximately 2.5 miles and will be closed off to car traffic.  Riders are encouraged to ride as many loops as they want!  I hope to bring a lot of people from the Tucson Brompton Bicycle Club Meetup Group and get some good photos and maybe some video!

Additional details are at the Ride on, Tucson website.


  1. I love it that Tucson has a Brompton meet up! How very fun. So far I haven't seen any other Brompton riders in Central Phoenix, although I've seen several other folding bikes on and around downtown ASU campus.

    And what is Patrick Dempsey's connection with Tucson besides the film? Any other or did he just love Tucson?

    1. I don't think there any other direct connection between Dempsey and Tucson... BUT he trains with Tom Danielson, who trains in Tucson during the winters.

      And of course we'd like to have you in the Meetup group if you want to join. We have a couple from Apache Junction (although I still haven't met them yet).
