KJZZ 91.5 FM is proud to be participating in the kick-off event for Tempe Bike Month in April. KJZZ’s Mobile Studio, Soundbite, is a highly specialized vehicle—combining the power of Public Radio with the majesty of gourmet vending. A collaborative project with Short Leash Hotdogs and Friends of Public Radio, the interactive truck provides food along with a sound experience through its live entertainment stage and complete mobile production studio.
The large turquoise truck will be part of the festivities at Tour de Tempe, a free, 12-mile bike ride led by members of the Tempe City Council taking place on Sunday, April 8 from 7:30-11 a.m. More than 1,000 riders are expected at the 22nd annual Tour de Tempe Community Bike Ride at Kiwanis Park, 6111 S. All America Way, in the west parking lot just north of Guadalupe Road.
Registration starts at 7:30 a.m. and the ride starts at 9 a.m. You can also register online now through April 5 at www.tempe.gov/BikeMonth. Free t-shirts will be available to first 850 riders. Helmets are required and riders should bring their own water.
Tempe Bike Month is an annual celebration of bicycle-friendly events to encourage residents to use alternative modes of transportation and raise awareness of all the resources available for biking in Tempe.
