Arizona “FUNDO” Bike Tour
The perfect way to get in shape for the season.
Tucson, Arizona, is the perfect warm spot to get in shape for your cycling season. Whether you are out for training or just anxious to get out of the ice and cold, Tucson is a cycling Mecca with hundreds of bike paths and cyclist-friendly routes.
This is our second warm weather FUNDO for the 2022 season. Our Fundos are designed for riders from Recreational to Advanced. The design of this tour keeps us in north Tucson for all four nights.
There will be one low cost of $695 per person for up to four days of riding. You will have all maps and GPS routing, van support at 5-10 mile intervals, mechanical support, energy drinks, riding snacks, Saguaro National Park entry and an occasional van ride for those who are tired.
Guests will pay for their own rooms, their own meals and will be responsible for their own transportation and bicycle shipment. A block of rooms is reserved at the Comfort Suites at Sabino and is available on a first-come, first-serve basis until December 31, 2021. Or, you and your group may opt to rent a VRBO or Airbnb in the local area. There will be one casual catered meal served poolside and a complimentary Wine and Brew social on our first evening. The group ride will be limited to the first 15 riders. Route maps will become available when you sign up.
We will ride the Tucson area bike loop, the Saguaro National Park with beautiful soaring cacti and tour the Sonoran Desert Museum. The urban bike routes in and about Oro Valley, the upscale neighborhoods in the Catalina foothills and Green Valley make for beautiful bonus views. As does a wonderful morning outing in Sabino Canyon where we can ride until 9:30 am then enjoy a beautiful hike.
