Bicycle Ranch, a Scottsdale bike shop, has expanded into the Tucson market.
Mike Wilkinson, co-owner of Tucson's Loop Bicycle Shop, stands at the fence outside his shop, which is housed in a former shipping container and stands along a section of Pima County's "The Loop" bike path, just north of El Camino Del Cerro.

Earrings by Casa Kira are among the items made by local vendors that are sold in Tucson's Loop Bicycle Shop.
Dove Mountain retiree Jim Stewart wasn't looking for a bike shop as he rode along "The Loop" bicycle path on the west side. But he was glad he found one.
