Yes, the information I got was mostly about the holistic and spa amenities vs. any cycling. Never been to the state so kinda clueless.

Close to Mt. Lemmon if you like climbing. Season permitting.
Nice hike up Sabino Canyon too if you like that.

I understand there's now a bike loop that circles the entire city. You could hook up with that not far from the resort.

I decided to stick to my original plan of the California coastal ride with InGamba. Will have to wait until they open the state which is okay, longer days in the saddle.

START LOCATION: Dillon Beach, CA.
FINISH LOCATION:Santa Barbara, CA.
DAYS RIDING:6
TOTAL DISTANCE:746km
TOTAL ELEVATION:9,205m
LONGEST DAY 4. Cambria Santa Ynes. 173km
BIGGEST CLIMBING DAY 3. Carmel Cambria. 2,321m

Alltrails calls it the Chuck Huckleberry Loop
https://www.alltrails.com/explore/tr...ckelberry-loop

which is about 54 mi.

Tucson is calling their extensive network of paths "The Loop". Around 120 mi.

I'm kinda interested. But thinking mid March to early April is when the flowers bloom here in the Sonoran.

I live in Tucson, there is a ton of riding here including the loop (which is mostly paved for road type cycling), but there are numerous MTB trails to ride for every skill level all around the city and surrounding areas. April would be a great month to come and explore while enjoying modest weather. By June it will be HOT! LOL
