Description:
This loop takes you over the Tucson mountain range twice (Picture Rocks and Gates Pass. There is a good amount of climbing on this ride and the eastwardly direction over Gates Pass is steep! There are few bike lanes and the road is not overly wide; however, there is not a huge amount of traffic as the west side of the mountain range is pretty rural. This route also passses the Desert Museum and old Tucson for anybody from out of town who wants to hits some tourist sites.
