We’re hitting the campaign trail – on bikes! Take a relaxed pace tour of Tempe’s bike trails with Councilmember Doreen Garlid, marshalled by Tempe Bicycle Action Group (TBAG) and hosted by Dave & Nancy Puffer. Wear your Garlid for Tempe t-shirt (if you don’t have one, let us know and we’ll provide one).
The purpose of this bike ride is to gain visibility and awareness of councilmember Garlid’s re-election campaign, no door-knocking or other campaign activities required, just ride with us and enjoy Tempe by bike. You can join us for all of the ride or a portion of it. All bike/trike riders welcome!
Before the ride, TBAG will provide us with a five-minute safety briefing and complementary support for any minor bike maintenance issues that may arise, as well as bike safety takeaways and information. Thank you, TBAG!
