USA Today recently listed “10 great places for city cycling”, which included Tucson. It mentioned “cactus-studded Saguaro National Park”, or the “15-mile trip, along the Rillito River, offers sweeping views of the Santa Catalina Mountains”. However, if you are up to the challenge, consider biking from Tucson to Summerhaven at Mt. Lemmon, 28 miles above Tucson.

Sedona’s $100 million highway project, which has been in progress for nearly five years is very impressive. We took 89A from Flagstaff, through Oak Creek Canyon, and into Sedona on Tuesday morning. We were very impressed with the beautiful roads with scenic pull-offs, and that had either bike paths along side or big wide red sidewalks.
It is functional and aesthetically pleasing. It certainly makes us want to return soon to take photographs, walk and ride our bikes.
