Best way to Join a Bike Gang: Tempe Bicycle Action Group
This group is serious about cycling. Created five years ago by Arizona State University graduates, the group now consists of more than one hundred bike fanatics*. The name started as a joke, but TBAG stickers now adorn frames across Tempe. From beginners to up-and-coming Lance Armstrongs, TBAG welcomes riders of all levels. Training wheelers can join them for the Cupcake Ride, a short ride to a local cupcake shop for a treat along the trail. Other events include weekend bar-hopping, bike polo, and tranquil rides around the Valley. TBAG’s six core volunteers also advocate for additional routes and rights for cyclists in Tempe.
