    Smile Suggestions for 2 Days of XC Riding in Tucson - March

    Hi All

    I'm going to be visiting visiting Arizona from England this March flying into Phoenix on the 24th March

    I've decided to head down to Tucson for a couple of days on 27th & 28th March as I've never ridden down that way before

    I've got 50 year trail & fantasy island loops on my radar as rides to do

    Should i be looking at any other trails - my preference is for flowing singletrack - rather than chunky rocky horror mandatory body armour down hill...

    Also does anyone have any suggestions as to a Hotel that would be in an ideal location to stay in in Tuscon

    Thanks....

    I fixed your tuscon to Tucson.

    Starr Pass has a huge variety of riding and you could stay at the hilton out there and ride right from the hotel. 50 year trail is great as well. I wouldn't say Fantasy Island is worth the drive to that side of town however, I mean it is a great trail that is fun and flowy but it is literally on the other side of town. Consider that Tucson has a bollocks transportation system, all travel is surface streets and you have a 40-50 minute drive to Fantasy island from Starr Pass.

    If you pick Mid town for riding factor in at least 20-30minutes to FI, 30-40 minutes to 50 year area, and 15-20 to Starr Pass.

    You should also try Tucsonmtb.com for scheduled Tucson rides and stuff.

    Hotels? I have an extra bed near within riding distance to the TH...I generally offer it up to any mountain biker for a six pack of good beer.
