Oro Valley/CDO Tucson Loop Section

ALL of Oro Valley is very cycling friendly. Oro Valley/Marana is the most popular retirement destination for cyclists in America, according to BikeAZ.org.

Start your ride at The Oro Valley Market Place, hop on the The Tucson Loop and your choices are unlimited. We recommend biking on The Loop to Tangerine and First Avenue, then going west on wide shoulder to Twin Peaks. You can then go north on a very scenic uphill climb to The Ritz Carlton or you can hang a left, taking a wide bike lane on Twin Peaks all the way over the highway, staying in the bike lane going back to the Marana Loop section – or head all the way to Silver bell.
