Viva Bike Arizona Aims to "Change the Conversation" About Bicycling Statewide

Valley-wide, bikes are finally becoming a part of the landscape. With density and accessibility becoming a must-have for competitive cities around the world, Phoenix area bicyclists are increasingly seeking to exert their power and make their respective environments ideal for riding in all conditions.

Following the creation and continued growth of such bicycling activist nonprofits as Tempe Bicycle Action Group (TBAG) and Phoenix Spokes People (PSP), Tempe resident and longtime cyclist Ryan Guzy saw a need to insert bikes into the statewide conversation on a more directly political level. An outgrowth of the "Tempe Bike People" Facebook group, the new Viva Bike Arizona political action committee was born.
