Back in the Old Pueblo

Hey there, fellow Tucsonans. We just moved back to AZ from Portland, OR, and I just wanted to announce our presence. I have zero experience riding the roads of Tucson as I didn't discover biking till we got to Oregon. So if anyone has any tips on good family-friendly ride locations I'd appreciate it. We're parked squarely in the middle of town (Grant/Swan).

Welcome back to the desert.

Have you found "The Loop" yet? Not sure how long you've been away, but there has been a genuine effort to develop a system of multi-use paths around town, some with access quite close to you. It's terrific.

Been away for about 18 months, but like I said, I didn't start riding till I got up there. This is exactly the sort of thing I was hoping to hear about. Big thanks!
