Pedaling the Pueblo – The History of Cycling in Tucson (according to my dad)

My dad, David Hansen (center) with one of his first Tucson cycling friends, Jack Janelle and Jack’s wife, Lynne.

 

“One day I found a note on my bike that said, if you’re interested in training or riding call this number.” Krista Hansen is joined by her dad, David Hansen, to hear stories about the “good ole days” of cycling in Tucson. When David moved to Tucson in 1965, he was one of only a few people in town with a bike – something that is hard to imagine now. Listen to the interview for a look at the development of Tucson’s cycling and racing scene.


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 ptp@kxci.org. You can also find us on Facebook.
