This tour is designed for the avid cyclist. Whether you are a "Flatlander" wanting to improve your climbing skills or just tired of riding in the basement for the Winter, this is your tour.

Though we have never offered this as a training camp, we have operated this tour 4 times. Now we are "beefing" it up another notch for those of you wanting to get a jump on your conditioning for the cycling season. We have engaged the help of a local cycling event designer to guarantee the best riding routes and optimal training locations.On the agenda areSaguaro National Park, Tucscon, Mt Lemmon Arizona, Sabino and Madera Canyons.

Picture the endless desert landscape framed from above by azure skies and surrounded by 10,000 foot mountain peaks. This is the old stomping ground for Geronimo, Cochise, Wyatt Earp and Doc Holiday. Cycle into the West Saguaro National Park where cacti soar nearly fifty feet high. Enjoy the perfectly mild 70 degree cycling weather. We cycle through the beautiful desert ranches to the north side of Tucson. Test your cycling stamina with a ride up famous Mount Lemmon. This is a fantastically easy trip, in that we do not move from our starting hotel in the beautiful Sabino Canyon. Invite your non cycling companion to enjoy 2 National Parks, colorful canyons for hiking, 100 miles of causual cycling paths, desert museums, galleries, spas, outstanding resorts and world class golf resorts.
