The Mill Avenue District has teamed up with the Tempe Bicycle Action Group, bike illumination masters CycleLights, and triathlon-themed store TriSports to welcome all of the folks who are passionate about pushing pedals. With rides taking place throughout the evening, nearby food and drink, and laidback Tucson rockers Race You There playing the Hayden Amphitheater, Valley velo fans can make a whole night of the two-wheeled affair.
