Tucson is getting some love from the USA Today travel section as one of the top-10 mountain bike destinations in the country.
The feature, which was published yesterday, put Tucson in the same category as Park City, Utah, Bend Ore, Grand Junction Colo. and six other destinations around the country.
Here’s what they had to say about Tucson:
Situated in the Sonoran desert, Tucson is surrounded by five separate mountain ranges—and in those mountain ranges are endless supplies of sweet singletrack. With more than 300 miles of trail, residents can head off into the backcountry, enjoy the popular Fantasy Island Network or, if they’re feeling extra adventurous, they can join the makeshift tent city and ride (or wrench) at the 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo. Just watch out for those Teddy Bear Chollas.
