Tucson Mountain Park via Tandem

Yeehaw! We drove to the Tucson Mountain Park today to nab a ride on our Santana tandem.

Steve retrieves the tandem from the bike rack.

We only went 8 miles as we are in the process of getting back in bicycling shape. Originally we wanted to ride in Saguaro National Park, but their staff at the Visitor Center advised against it with the narrow road and heavy amount of vehicular traffic.

We had the road virtually to ourselves.

We are thankful that they suggested Tucson Mountain Park. There was one SUV and several bikes. Otherwise we had the road to ourselves.

A saguaro forest and a plethora of other cacti and desert vegetation filled the landscape!

The landscape was thick with stately saguaro cacti. Is it possible to call this a saguaro forest?

Until next time…

Happy Trails!
