Meet Scott Walters

Scott Walters
Scott is providing liaison between the Coalition and the Tempe Bicycle Action Group. 

Scott Walters is a transplant from bicycle friendly Minneapolis.  As a kid, he delivered the daily paper by bicycle but now he writes software.  In 2011, he completed his first and hopefully last Paris Brest Paris.
Scott also serves on the Tempe Bicycle Action Group
board as the Advocacy Director.  He found traveling by bike to be a great way to make friends in a city where that's often hard and he hopes to see more people on bikes for more of their trips.

"Tour of Arizona"?

I wrote this partly because the ATOC (Amgen Tour of California) is one of the few major racing events in the USA and it is (from personal experience) a great event to witness. Linda and I have been to several stages of four of these events. If you cannot, or do not wish to, travel to France, Italy or Spain for a Grand Tour, this (along with the US Pro Challenge in CO and Tour of Utah) is the next best thing to experience the speed, athleticism and adrenaline of pro road bike racing.
