    There's a pretty good cycling scene down there with some strong riders. Their high school won the state championship. Two good shops, M&M and Sun-n-Spokes are about a half mile apart on the main drag, Frye Boulevard. A number of group rides both on and off the road happen on a weekly basis.

    Brown Canyon (off Ramsey Canyon Rd) and the Perimeter Trail/Cooper Loop are two of the more popular and accessible rides, both fun. At the lower elevations you're in grasslands and these trails bring you into Oak woodlands, not what most people expect for SE AZ. Maybe 5-10 degrees cooler than Tucson on average.

    Cool thanks. I stumbled across a "move here" community/outdoor activity related promo on the area somewheres but don't recall any riding being mentioned here.

    idaz, can you describe the Cooper Loop a little more? I've been looking to ride that area next time I'm visiting in-laws in the area. Thanks in advance!

    Check out the following link. Cooper Loop Mountain Bike Trail, Sierra Vista Southeast, Arizona

    I think M&M Cycles also has Sierra Vista area trail maps on their website.
