The river path system is a great way to get to the various rides within Tucson without having to deal with traffic and lights. It is the safest way on a bike to travel across town. We recommend using The Tucson Loop as a starting point, then going off The Loop to discover safe, great roads in Oro Valley, Marana and many other places.
