Great Cycling in Tucson Sahuarita to Mission Road Loop Road Biking ROAD BIKING TUCSON, ARIZONA - Just 20 minutes south of Tucson are three small towns called Sahuarita, Green Valley and Tubac that offer the best rural desert Arizona cycling experiences you can ever have. Sahuarita and Green Valley, Arizona are two little towns located just 20 and 30 minutes south of Tucson. Sahuarita is a small family town with wide roads and plenty of bike lanes. Green Valley is the retirement alternative that also has wide roads and plenty of bike lanes. You can park in Sahuarita and safely bike all they way to the Mexican border if you liked. Park anywhere in Sahuarita then ride west on Sahuarita Road all the way to Mission Road. You can choose to ride north or south, but we love the stretch of lonely road that goes south. It's windy, curvy and your see nothing but beautiful desert and what locals call the “Green Valley Pyramids” - also known as our the copper mines. Make Mission Road An “Old West” Experience Take a left on Duval Mine Road and head west, but take a quick right on Esperanza and head towards Green Valley and the road is a fast downhill ride. You can take this road straight to and take a right at Abrego then a left on Continental, heading to Old Nogales Highway and/or incredible Madera Canyon. Stop off and get some coffee at La Posada Java.      ...

CYCLING TUCSON, Arizona - Let's face it. When it comes to cycling [caption id="attachment_5309" align="alignright" width="300"] Smooth blacktop ahead! The Loop Is Awesome.[/caption] most cyclists who come here are not serious road bikers. Most people who come here just want to grab a bike, take out their families and have a good time. They don't have $10,000 carbon bikes and they think wearing spandex is hideous. Tucson is a great place for those just looking for fun, safe, easy riding. Biking The Tucson Loop Shared Use Path With over 100 miles of paved biking, The Loop is an awesome place enjoy biking safely without having to deal with any traffic. We recommend staying at the Homewood Suites By Hilton on Campbell and River or Candlewood Suites located just off the highway. Both of these hotels are pretty much right on The Loop.

Stay and bike here and you are a reasonable drive to just about anywhere in Tucson. There are shared bike lanes in this area, but the traffic is very heavy. Work is ongoing to add more miles of paths. When completed, The Loop will total 131 miles and connect the Rillito River Park, Santa Cruz River Park, and Pantano River Park with Julian Wash and the Harrison Greenway. I recommend parking in the St Phillips Plaza and starting from there, going west. With over 100 miles of paved shared use bike path, The Tucson Loop Bike Path has become one of America's greatest and most successful municipal commitments to safe and enjoyable cycling. Pima County is developing The Loop around metro Tucson with links to Marana, Oro Valley, and South Tucson. Pima County residents and visitors on foot, bikes, skates, and horses can enjoy the more than 100 miles of shared-use paths that have already been completed. If it doesn't have a motor, it's good to go on The Loop. When all is finished, The Loop will be 131 miles of biking and shared use fun. Grab a bike, get some running shoes, hop on a horse and enjoy America's greatest western city. For more information on biking the The Tucson Loop, click here....
