ROAD BIKING, ORO VALLEY – The road bike ride called “Cody Loop” is a popular ride among cyclists who live on the northwest side of Tucson and Oro Valley, Arizona.
Once you get to the town of Oracle you take a right hand turn on American Ave to ride the loop know as “Cody Loop.” Then you ride back to Tucson on highway 77.
