Best Ride Ever...
Whether you're training for competition or looking to take on some serious mountain bike trails or simply seek to cruise along leisurely, Tucson is perfect for people who prefer to see the world on two wheels.
Amazing opportunities for both mountain biking and road biking are around every corner and with hundreds of miles of trails and bike routes, riders of all levels can easily get their fix. And if you'd like a more customized cycling experience, check out our options for Cycling Day Trips.
Everyone likes to get on The Loop, a 131-mile car-free network of multi-use trails and paved paths that spans the metro Tucson area, allowing cyclists, pedestrians, joggers and equestrians an opportunity to exercise, commute, and enjoy our beautiful Sonoran Desert. Our TUGO bike share program makes it easier than ever for both visitors and locals to cruise around the city. Plus, our city's famously sunny and dry weather means just about any time is right for a ride. It's no wonder Tucson is consistently ranked as one of the top U.S. cycling cities.
