Arizona Territory. But we might have lost it in a war a century or so ago.

Don't know anything about Mexico, but if you are open to USA, Tucson is great.

[MENTION=454156]Eec111[/MENTION] I raced the Tour of Mazatlan a couple of years ago and had a blast. There are a lot of roads just out of town and some good climbs. Great food and weather, welcoming folks. It's become a vacation spot for the Mexican middle class, none of the drunken ugly American vibe you get in places like Cabo.

Bikes: too many bikes from 1967 10s (5x2)Frejus to a Sumitomo Ti/Chorus aluminum 10s (10x2), plus one non-susp mtn bike I use as my commuter

Depends on what you need. If you don't need hills, Cozumel is nearly perfect. The 45 mile circular road is lightly traveled, and very safe. However it's as close to dead flat as possible, though slightly hillier than the salt flats in Bonneville.

The loop can be surprisingly tough on windy days, especially if from the northeast.

Plenty of triathletes from all over the world have made Cozumel their winter training grounds, so you won't be lonely.
