Tucson in Loops

Heart of the Wild West

A highly popular American cycling destination, Tucson is located 728 meters above sea level, in a valley surrounded by five mountain chains. From there, your looped route will take you along some favourite cycling circuits, starting with 2,800-meter-high Mount Lemmon, where Lance Armstrong trained during the winter between Tour de France events. You will also bike the Saguaro National Park route, nicknamed The Loop, where the giant cactuses can grow up to 15 meters high, as well as the route to Arivaca, a remote corner of Arizona, just north of the Mexican border. This desert setting, with its dry, pleasant climate, has provided the backdrop for many Western films. Yippee Ki-Yay!
