Welcome to the American Southwest and some of the most exciting cycling in the country. Starting in Tucson, AZ, we’ll venture out into this remote, wild and beautiful landscape.

Giant saguaros are a universal symbol of the American West, yet these majestic plants are only found in a relatively small portion of Arizona. Saguaro National Park protects some of the most impressive forests of these sub-tropical giants, on the edge of the Tucson city limits.

This 5-day bike tour explores Arizona’s empty roads rising to the impenetrable mountain strongholds of the Apache. It offers various challenging levels for differing abilities. In addition to the incredible cycling, you’ll also experience Arizona’s Sky Islands: which are mountainous biologic refuges surrounding by a desert that rises thousands of feet above the surrounding desert.

Join us to experience southern Arizona’s finest and most remote biking, stay at small camps, and gain a first-hand understanding of this special land.

Climate Ride charitable events bring together bright minds, breathtaking routes for all cycling abilities, and an unforgettable combination of passion and purpose. On this trip, we’ll get a first-hand look at the environmental issues affecting the desert Southwest. Proceeds from this event will support Climate Ride directly (no beneficiary selection for this event).
