Flagstaff, located in northern Arizona, is known for its cooler temperatures and is a popular destination for road riders. The city is home to the Flagstaff Urban Trail System, a network of paved trails that offer a safe and scenic way to explore the city.
In addition to the trails and roads available for cycling, Arizona also has a number of organized rides and events throughout the year. The El Tour de Tucson is a popular annual ride that attracts thousands of participants, and the Tour de Phoenix is a multi-day ride that takes riders through the scenic desert landscape.
Overall, Arizona is a great state for cycling, with a wide variety of trails and roads, a year-round riding season, and a number of organized rides and events. Whether you are a mountain biker, road rider, or just looking to get out and enjoy the scenery, Arizona has something for everyone.
