My husband Rick is a cyclist. He heads out early every weekend and rides for several hours, many times getting 70+ miles in during the ride. That isn’t exactly my idea of fun, but for him, he loves it. I am the one with the cruiser. I am more likely to stop and take a photo along the ride to catch my breath. Luckily we live in Scottsdale and we are both in great shape for going on a ride.
Scottsdale is being awarded the Gold Designation from The League of American Bicyclists. There are only 14 Gold Designated cities in the country, and the highest level of Platinum has been given to only 3 cities.
So why is Scottsdale so bike friendly; with 112 miles of bike routes, 124 miles of bike lanes, and my favorite, the 119 miles of paved bike paths as well as 218 miles of unpaved trails, is it any wonder that Scottsdale is a bicyclist’s paradise. Whatever your preference!
So with cooler weather here, hop on your bike and explore the area!
