Tucson received some national recognition last week when USA Today named it one of the 10 best bike cities in the country.

Here's what the publication had to say about the Old Pueblo's bike scene:

"Situated in the lush Sonoran Desert and surrounded by five mountain ranges, Tucson is a favorite city for riders.

Bicycle events here are plentiful, while key rides include those around The Loop, a multi-use trail developed around Tucson/Pima County. The trail connects the Santa Cruz River Park with the Julian Wash Greenway."
