Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Meet your group at the meeting point for either a morning or afternoon departure. Get a bicycle appropriate for your height and a helmet, and listen to a short safety orientation led by your guide.

Your Tuscon adventure begins with a ride over to Rattlesnake Bridge, the 28-foot-long downtown bridge that was completed in 2002. The bridge is actually shaped like a real diamondback rattlesnake. Make sure to hold onto your handles as you bike through its body and your guide tells tales of bank robbers and outlaws that used to reside in the area.

Then, explore the historical streets of Barrio Viejo, and see colorful adobe homes and fascinating shrines. Cruise down Barrio Kroger Lane and get a closer look at the Santa Cruz River.

Then head back to the original departure point to conclude your tour.

The 9am tour is generally the best bet for less experienced riders (min height 4’8”, 5’ recommended).

This was a fun way to see Old Tucson and the University of Arizona campus. The ride was not difficult and the bikes were comfortable. There was not a lot of traffic which made the trip pleasant. It is a great way to learn some history of Tucson, see some historic sites and get a little exercise at the same time.

Fun way to explore and learn history of downtown Tucson. Tour is well equipped and the leader congenial and knowledgeable. So much to see and appreciate in the hidden streets of downtown. I've done this tour twice and will do it again. I learn something every time. Thank you, Jimmy, for a fun ride.

Jimmy was excellent at giving us a tour, the bikes were decent and in good operation. The tour covered much of historic Tucson. Most of the ride was flat, some mild hills to pedal. Even if you are not used to biking or physical activity, this was a 3 out of 10 on biking difficulty.

Loved this!. One of the highlights of our two week tour of Italy. Our guide Alexa was wonderful! Tour of castle and wine cellar were great, the biking was hilly, but manageable had to walk part of a few hills, and the views were spectacular. Lunch and wine at the castle after were divine!! Highly recommend.
