Pueblo High School’s cycling class and Road Warriors club have gotten students out and on bikes for over 20 years. As Cyclovia Remix returns to the South 12th Avenue (La Doce) Route this October, we visited the Southside high school and spoke with students of all ages about why being able to ride bikes is special to their experience at school and in their neighborhood.
In addition to holding the first period cycling class, Pueblo High instructor Ernesto Somoza spends his free time and weekends teaching about basic bike maintenance, riding tips, and navigating Tucson infrastructures. As is tradition, members of the Road Warriors club will be competing in El Tour de Tucson this November–some of them riding 100 miles!
YOU CAN HELP Pueblo High Students raise funds for needed equipment and support their goal of riding El Tour de Tucson!
If you’re getting ready for a big ride or working on your cycling stamina, the club is hosting a 60-mile bike ride and fundraiser on Saturday, 23rd. The group will leave promptly at 8am from Pueblo High School for a beautiful ride on The Loop. **Suggested donation is $10, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
