Those of us who are Tucson area locals know some of the best “off the beaten path” road biking adventures and this is one of them! Depending on the amount of miles you want to ride, you can start in Green Valley to enjoy a 60 plus mile day, or you can park near the Cow Palace in Amado and do a 46 mile round trip. You will get some good climb on this ride as Amado starts at a hair over 3,000 feet and you will climb higher than 3600 feet before you descend into Arivaca. Only do this ride early morning on the weekend.
