Pedaling Tucson…

Every time I see an adult on a bicycle, I no longer despair for the future of the human race.
H. G. Wells – 1866-1946


One thing I like about Tucson is that it’s a great place for riding bicycles. There are a number of websites devoted to cycling in Tucson, including the city’s bicycle program that describes plans, improvements to trails, and other local cycling issues. Visit Tucson writes that Tucson is the third best bicycling city in the country, according to Bicycling magazine. The Visit Tucson website also has information about its 500 miles of metro bikeways. Another useful resource, Arizona Bike Rides, describes Tucson’s best bike rides.

Postscript —

Tucson seems to have the greatest number of bicyclist fatalities of any major city. I don’t know if the drivers aren’t careful around bicyclists or if bicyclists aren’t careful around cars.
