Tucson participates in the global initiative called "Ghost Bikes" - an effort to raise awareness of bicyclist fatalities on our roadways. Here's one of Tucson's Ghost Bikes at Udall Park. To see many photographs of this worthy project, click here. This bike honors US Air Force Lt Col Charles Nystrom.
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
