“Picture Rocks has some intense twists and turns, great hill climbing and scenery. I shy away from this as there really is no shoulder. Bike this area on off peak hours – namely the summer when the tourists are gone.”

ROAD BIKING TUCSON, Arizona – The Picture Rocks ride has some awesome desert scenery and some breath taking views as well as a couple short “breath-taking” climbs.
Be careful coming down the back (west) side of Gates Pass because it is a fast, narrow decent with some very tight turns so control your speed.
Also be careful on Picture Rocks Road because the road does not have much of a shoulder so watch out for cars.
