“Our two tour guides were excellent. Met all our needs.” Jan K., Tucson cycling
The Tucson area and southwest Arizona is frequently exalted as a cycling mecca by organizations from Forbes, Outside and the Travel Channel. We first learned to love the area from our Chiricahua hiking adventures, but our cycling tours have shown us what a beautiful area it is for early season cycling. Come join us to see for yourself.
The city is ringed by 4 mountain ranges, so our itinerary includes exploring some summits and canyons as well as some of the flatter desert areas. That means there will be memorable views and wide expanses. During the week we will ride in the Santa Catalina and Rincon Mountains, cruise the Green Valley to the south, explore both east and west Saguaro National Park, and visit quaint and quirky communities. Make sure you get a picture of the iconic Saguaro Cactus. This symbol of the southwest is found only in the Sonoran Desert, and normally grows to 40 feet* in height.
