Stop me if you heard this one before, Tucson is a great cycling city. Maybe we're biased, but Tucson was built for cyclist. If you won’t take our word for it, maybe USA TODAY Travel’s top 10 U.S. Cycling Cities will change your mind.

Tucson takes 7th place in this formidable “must-visit list for active vacationers of all ages."

From USA TODAY:

George Hincapie nominated Tucson for, among other things, its strong winter appeal. During the colder months, the city becomes a hotbed of cycling activity as northern-based enthusiasts come down to enjoy mild winter temps and dry conditions of the high desert. The 55-mile car-free Urban Loop, in addition to a whopping 700 miles of bike lanes, makes this college town a favorite with road cyclists, while the surrounding mountains, including Mt. Lemmon, provide a wide range of terrain for mountain biking.

We salute you, George Hincapie. You might have finished 2nd in the 2011 National Road Race Championships, but today you finish first in our hearts.
