Thanks to everyone who took our survey last month (link to survey)! 59 of you weighed in on future TBAG activities and here’s what you said:

Potential future TBAG activities (average score, 5=best):

  1. Partner with the City of Tempe to start a bicycle friendly business program (3.66)
  2. Host monthly bicycle-related social events, such as bike film nights at a local bar and tours of local happy hours by bike (3.64)
  3. Organize informal cycling tours/camping trips and weekly rides (3.47)
  4. Start a program to distribute free (or low cost) bicycle lights to encourage safe cycling (3.27)
  5. Work with the City of Tempe on a bicycle rack program (3.15)
  6. Bring a bicycle film festival to Tempe (3.15)
  7. Lobby for a citywide texting-while-driving ban (similar to the recent Phoenix ban) (2.98)
  8. Deliver a set of bicycle commuter workshops (including workshops specifically for women and the ASU community) (2.97)
  9. Hold a series of bicycle trailer building workshops (2.49)
  10. Set up bicycle valet parking at large Tempe events (concerts, Festival of the Arts etc.) (2.33)

People also suggested lobbying the city for better bicycle infrastructure, putting on crosstown bike/light rail/bus races, reinstating bike polo, providing accident statistics, holding large cycling events to improve cyclist visibility, tune-up workshops, cyclist eduction, and driver education.

Thanks for all of these great ideas! In the next week or two, we’ll be contacting everyone who indicated they’d be willing to volunteer so that we can set up program committees and start moving on some of these projects.

Also in the coming weeks, look for the launch of some new TBAG programs and some social rides!

    pub crawl, alley kat, cruisers, fixies, whatever you call it, chronic taco in tempe has an alright patio, decent drinks, and decent music. im not much for promoting a place, let alone a bro-dog environment asu, but i had a vision to make this place a kool hangout for bicycle like minded individuals such as myself. i talked to a dood down there named ‘rick’ and says if you ride a bike on wednesdays, happy hour 4-7, they throw in $3 bluemoon drafts, dos xx, $5 patron shots and margaritias, and some other drink and food specials i cannot remember. plus, dunno the context of this, but dood said if yer bike gang has a rider with bartending experience, they may even let you get behind the bar to serve up some drinks to your hommies. that’d be nuts. anyways, thought i’d pass along the good info to all you crazy riders out there.

    I voted for that one because it was the most practical and in terms of money and time the easier than above.

    Note I found some of these things already going on.

    don’t they already have requirements per parking space ratio?

    That should be interesting. Glad so many people want to do this. My schedule is a train wreck.
