World Class Mountain, Road, Leisure Biking Is In Tucson, Arizona

Bicyclists From All Over Canada and US Love Tucson, Arizona’s Great Cycling and Weather

The World’s top road, mountain, gravel and leisure biking destination is clearly in Tucson, Arizona. Professional cyclists, serious sport enthusiasts and casual bikers have fallen in love with Tucson and Southern Arizona. Tucson is famous for Mt. Lemmon cycling and the great hill climb rides. Leisure cyclists have fallen in love with the 130 mile car-free Tucson Loop bike path system that circles Oro Valley and Tucson. And with over 40 mountain bike trails, Tucson and Southern Arizona has emerged as a mountain biking Mecca.

Arizona’s Tuscon Loop Bike Path – America’s Top Bike Trail System

The Tucson Loop network of shared-use paths in metro Tucson connects the communities of Marana, Oro Valley, and South Tucson. The paved path has dozens of access points through the metro area and people can walk or run and ride bikes, skates or horses for as much or as little of the 131-mile route as they like. No motorized vehicles are allowed. The car-free route provides access to parks, trail heads, bus and bike routes, restaurants, schools, shopping areas, and entertainment venues and is open from dawn to dusk. The Loop is the place for annual cycling events, including Loop The Loop, which in September kicks off E Tour de Tucson season, and Tour de Cookie in March.

Says, Ottawa Doctor James Lunney, “I travel to Tucson each year and there is nothing quite like The Tucson Loop bike path system. This bicycle path offers bikers of all levels great cycling opportunities.”

Cycling Fourth Avenue/Downtown Tucson

At Epic Cafe on Fourth Avenue, there’s a great bike corral for your parking needs, but if you’d like to take a trip north from there, the Fourth Avenue/Fontana route takes riders to the Amphi neighborhood via a journey complete with public art, bike crossings and a great tour of Tucson houses. This is a fun place to rent a cruiser or hybrid bike for a spin!

Cyclovia Cycling Event

It’s not really a “ride” per se, but Cyclovia Tucson is a love letter to a car-free existence in Tucson. It’s a community event, held twice a year in different locations. City streets are closed so bicycles can ride along a car-free route. B, booths are manned, beer gardens are grown, and pedestrians and bicyclists get a space to themselves for a day. It’s just a lot of fun.

Biking Mount Lemmon

Definitely not for everyone, the ride up Catalina Highway to Mount Lemmon is a workout for even world-class bicyclists. And don’t be surprised to see one (or a pack) of them fly by you a few miles outside of Le Buzz, the coffee shop on Tanque Verde that acts as a meetup space for the riding community. They might actually be heading out on the full 26-mile ride up to the top of Mt. Lemmon, gaining nearly 6,000 feet in elevation in the process. Again, it’s not for everyone, but it is a great gift to have this ride available and right outside of the city.

Saguaro National Park East

It doesn’t get much more beautiful than this ride, as majestic saguaros surround you on the paved scenic route through this national park. It’s only eight miles, but it does feature some rollers, a steady climb and an experience you won’t soon forget.
