Spring is prime time for biking; if you can’t get your pedaling in swing now, you’ll never get acclimated to the summer. What better way to get into the rhythm than to bring your two-wheel deal to Downtown Mesa’s big bash, CycloMesa, starting on April 10?

The weekend-long shindig mixes up legit biking events, El Tour Criterium and El Tour de Mesa, with more casual bike fun like a custom bike competition, a food truck alley, and live music.

CycloMesa wheels down to the Mesa Convention Center, 263 North Center Street, Friday from 4 to 10 p.m. and continues on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Admission is free. For more information, visit

Fri., April 10, 4-10 p.m.; Sat., April 11, 9 a.m.-2 p.m.; Sun., April 12, 10 a.m.-2 p.m., 2015
