A scenic one-day bicycle tour in Cochise County, Arizona. Sky Islands are known in the southwest as mountain ranges surrounded by radically different lowland environments. All Sky Island tour rides are a loop, beginning and ending at the Windemere Hotel in Sierra Vista, AZ.
The metric century 62-mile bicycle ride takes place on mostly rural roads with an adequate shoulder width to provide a comfortable ride for the intermediate to advanced rider. The ride passes through Historic Bisbee, Arizona (www.discoverbisbee.com) and twice crosses over the San Pedro River. Two support stops will provide water, performance drink, and snacks. Restaurants in Bisbee also provide an opportunity to eat and rest, which is about half way through the ride. Technical support is also provided on the route if needed.
A 21-mile bicycle ride around Sierra Vista on the newly designated Cochise-Vistas Bicycle Route. This casual ride for all level of riders takes place on multi-use paths and when not on a multi-use path most roads are stripped with a bike lane.
