Biking

Spin Your Wheels

Whether you're training for a long road race, looking for exciting new mountain challenges or enjoying leisurely rides with the family, Tucson is perfect for biking fun.

We have hundreds of miles of bike friendly roads, including the 55-mile, car-free Urban Loop, as well as dozens of trails from easy to highly technical. In fact, Tucson has been ranked by Bicycling magazine as one of the top cycling cities in the U.S. And with our mild climate and mostly sunny skies, almost every day is perfect for a ride any time of year. Our road cycling and mountain biking pages contain a plethora of information on Tucson cycling. Visit some of our local cycling clubs' websites under the Useful Links (right)  to find out more information about Tucson's cycling opportunities.

 

Get information on Tucson cycling events presented by the Perimeter Bicycling Association, which puts on our famous The University of Arizona Medical Center El Tour de Tucson presented by Casino Del Sol bike race event each November.
