Pedaling the Pueblo – Ochoa Bike Club


A partnership between the John Valenzuela Youth Center, BICAS and Safe Routes to School Tucson, the goal of the Ochoa Bike Club is to empower and guide youth through recreation and educational programs. Every Wednesday afternoon, staff teach FUNdamental bike skills on group rides with 6-11 year olds from Ochoa Community School in South Tucson. As you’ll hear in this episode of Pedaling the Pueblo, the club is about much more than just riding bikes. Listen to 9-year-old bike club members, Amapola, Alan and Brian, talk with Coach Gene about how the joy of riding bikes can be a tool for building character and learning lessons that translate to life both on and off the bike.

Pedaling the Pueblo is a mini-program and podcast that connects people to news and information about Tucson’s bicycle culture. A collective of bicycle enthusiasts host and produce weekly programs covering a wide variety of topics. From community events to questions about how bicycle funding works; tips to start riding more to interviews with local bicycling legends, Pedaling the Pueblo explores life on two wheels from a “people first” approach, allowing us all to have an open dialogue about how people move through our shared built environment.

Content is responsive to and driven by the community, so if you have a question or topic you’d like to hear covered, email us at [email protected]. You can also find us on Facebook.
