TBAG Solstice Ride 2015

This is the ONLY reason to leave the house this summer.

On the HOTTEST day of the year, we celebrate by riding bikes to different stops.

– Riding then jumping into multiple pools
– MASSIVE water balloon fight in the park
– Slip n’ Slide at Birchett park

Then we end the festivities off with an amazing pool party. This years host will be University Pointe ! Check the event page for photos of the party space.

This event IS a fundraiser, so heres how that works:

$20 presale tickets are available now! SOLSTICERIDE.com

The ticket gets you into the final pool party, a 1 of a kind limited edition Solstice Ride tank top, and a beer donated
from our good friends at SAN TAN BREWERY and NEW BELGIUM

The ride itself IS FREE. The end party and the tank top are not. All funds go to Tempe Bicyle Action Group and their vigilance in growing our cycling community.

More details to come. Feel free to ask ANY questions and ill answer them immediately.

Cycle to the Right

Cycle Right

Cyclists are an integral and growing part of our community. Unfortunately, this fun and sustainable mode of transportation is dangerous in a city built for cars. We aim at raising awareness for bicycle users so less of us get hurt or even killed by cars.

Bike Valet Information

Tempe Bicycle Action Group launched bike valet service on December 29th, 2008 for the METRO Light Rail Grand Opening. We followed up with several large Tempe Beach Park events including the Great Arizona Beer Festival and Tempe Oktoberfest. In 2009 we parked close to 1,000 bikes.

What is Bike Valet? It’s essentially a coat check, but for bicycles instead of coats. Cyclists leave their bike with us and we provide them a claim check for their bicycle. The bikes are parked and secured in a fenced off area near the event entrance and kept under constant watch by our dedicated volunteers. The best part is the service is free for bicyclists!

In a nutshell, providing bike valet at your event effectively says “Yes, we support alternative transportation, green initiatives and we welcome you, the cycling public, by providing free, convenient and secure bike parking”.

Some Bike Valet Benefits:

  • You make cyclists feel included even if your event does not allow bicycles inside the event perimeter
  • Cyclists feel more comfortable attending your event knowing their bicycles are much more secure under the watchful eyes of our dedicated volunteers instead of locked to a fence somewhere in a dark corner
  • It shows you support alternative transportation, congestion reduction and green initiatives that benefit our health & the environment

If you are interested in having us provide bike valet at your event, please fill out this form and we’ll contact you in a timely manner.
