Just in time for the hotly anticipated Tour de California stop in Santa Cruz, People Power presents the Tour de Everyday a community bike ride focusing on everyday transportation.

While the tour of California rolls through once a year, there are hundreds of everyday heroes who ride their bikes 365 days a year to work, school, or anywhere their hearts desire!

By the simple act of getting on a bicycle and riding to places most people would only drive to, bicycle commuters are doing their part to reduce noise and air pollution, reliance on foreign oil, increase public safety, and enhance their own health. They are, like their racing counterparts, demonstrating the power of the human body to move itself.

Join People Power on Sunday, February 15th at noon, as we demonstrate the everyday utility of the bicycle for transportation. Beginning at the Hub for Sustainable Transportation at 703 Pacific Ave., the Tour de Everyday will take participants through the various bike routes riders can take to school, to work, to shopping or natural resources. Perhaps we will even be joined by Vance Legstrong. Whether an aspiring bike commuter looking for a "bike routes of Santa Cruz 101" or a longtime rider looking to meet fellow bike commuters, the Tour de Everyday will demonstrate how bicycles are an efficient, inexpensive, and enjoyable way to get anywhere in town throughout the year. The most important tour is the one you do everyday!
