    Pima County’s Bike Ambassadors will hand out bike bells, regional bike maps, maps of The Loop (Pima County’s 110-plus-mile shared use path) as well as other safety items as part of outreach events held through April 30, 2017. 
    Bike maps
    Bike Ambassadors working with Pima County’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Program will give out the bells on a first-come, first-served basis. They are adjustable and fit any diameter handlebars on all bikes. 

    In addition to the events at set locations along The Loop, other Ambassadors plan to “roam The Loop” meaning they will take supplies on their bikes, then ride in either direction from the Ambassadors’ station to go visit other trailheads and rest stops and provide items to users. Among the additional items that Ambassadors will pass out are bike and pedestrian safety bookmarks to help people understand how to safely share the path.
