“Gary & Jessie poured their heart and soul into planning, hosting and supporting this amazing tour”
Jennie – 2014 Southern Az. Discovery Tour
Arizona Cycling Tours is all about Arizona. We are a locally owned and operated bicycle touring company based in Tucson, doing what we do best, sharing our passion for cycling and our love for the Sonoran Desert. Let us guide you to an experience that you will not soon forget. Come and discover the blue skies and bright sunshine of the Southwest as you ride your bike through forests of majestic saguaro cactus. Imagine what it was like for the first settlers trekking across the unknown of the desert and gaze upon an endless Arizona night sky. Saddle up on your trusty two wheeled steed as you cross the Arizona territory and explore such places as the historic mining town of Bisbee, southern Arizona wineries, and a Spanish mission just to name a few.
At Arizona Cycling Tours, your tour guides are not only local experts but are also the owners. Gary and Jessie Menard use their combined 40 plus years of cycling experience to show you a way to enjoy our state on roads a little less traveled. You will relax at only the best accommodations and indulge in the area’s finest dining. From the glorious mountains surrounding Tucson, to the sprawling pastures of Sonoita and the soothing beauty of the Huachuca Mountains, your heart will forever be etched with memories of spectacular sunsets, rolling desert landscapes and good times with new friends.
At Arizona Cycling Tours, we keep our groups small. It is paramount that we give unsurpassed customer service to every client on our tour. Jessie is in charge of two support vehicles while Gary is riding amongst the group on the road. There are various mileage options available on most days and of course the van is always on hand to provide a break or a ride to the next lunch spot. Picture yourself relaxing under the sun in the old mining town of Bisbee, enjoying a well-earned lunch. Mmmmm, don’t be shy, because unfortunately, it doesn’t travel well in a jersey pocket.
When you come to southern Arizona, expect life to slow down just a bit, allowing you to relax and enjoy the many adventures under the sun!
