Popular Tucson Rides

A cycling wonderland!

The reason Tucson is so popular as a cycling destination is due in large part to its wide variety of self-guided and group rides. In addition to all the great places you can ride on your own, Tucson is one of the best places for group rides. Every day of the week, 365 days a year, there is a group ride available to join. Everything from the ultra-fast pace of the A group Shootout to the more mellow GABA group rides. It can all be found in Tucson.

Self-Guided Rides

Staff Favorites

Fast Company

Some of the fastest group rides in the Southwest!


Weekday Fun

Tucson has great group rides 7 days a week.

World-Famous Shootout

Saturdays and Tuesdays

Possibly the best known Tucson group ride is the Main Shootout, which is held every Saturday morning starting downtown by the University of Arizona. It offers a little something for everyone, from the beginning racer to the paid professional. It's a place to get great training or test yourself against some of the strongest riders in North America. The Shootout is also a staff favorite and we would be more than happy to give you some pointers.

If you like your fast group rides with really nice views the try out the BR Saturday ride.  Most of this ride takes place on the North West side which provides for some great views.


In addition to a wide variety of weekend rides Tucson has some of the best weekday rides aswell. A few of our favorites are the Wednesday Worlds, Thursday's JKG and Fridays with Sabino Cycles.
