    Who rents bikes in Tucson

    I lived in Tucson a long time, so I am familiar with the shops and trails. I'm heading back for a vacation next week, and don't want to bring my bike. Last time I rented a bike in Tucson must have been over 12 years ago at Broadway bikes (they were renting full suspension Proflex at the time!)
    Who's renting these days?

    Broadway still rents, and so does Fairwheel.

    Thanks.
    It looks like Broadway has Trek Fuel EX for $50/day, and Fairwheel has Epics and Stumpjumpers for $65.

    If you're on the NW side of town, near Oro Valley, Way Out West rents C-dales and is near the popular 50 Year Trail. 825-4590

    I never knew about that place. It looks very cool. It looks like that's where I should be staying!

    I had a great time in Tucson, and was able to ride Star Pass and Chiva falls while I was there. Maybe not perfect choices, but two great classic Tucson rides that bring back lots of fond memories for me.

    The guys at Broadway Bikes were cool. I got a Gary Fisher Hi Fi for $50 bucks. It's a cool shop I should have supported more when I lived there.

    Be thankful every day that you live in such a cool beautiful place. I moved to Denver a year ago, which is supposed to be a mountain biking mecca, but I'll tell you that Tucson beats Denver for mountain biking by about a bazillion percent.
    Sitting in a snow storm right now, and have barely had a chance to ride at all in 5 months.

    Check out Pueblo, hear the trails south of the reservoir are sweet, 60+ miles of trails.
    Lake Pueblo State Park. Also wanna check out the Hogback by Red Rocks.

    I do need to check out Pueblo. It's south, and lower elevation, so the trails are ride-able
    at times throughout the winter.

    I've been to the trails around Red Rocks. Some good riding for sure, when it isn't covered with snow, ice or mud. And it gets pretty crowded on weekends in the summer.
    You really have to appreciate what you have in Tucson. compared to Denver, the trails are:
    Closer
    Less crowded
    Just as beautiful
    Ride-able EVERY day.

    Tucson is a great place to be a mountain biker.

    I have to admit, the skiing keeps winter bearable for me. Loveland and A Basin are still open, and I had a great day at Loveland yesterday. Bright and sunny above timberline at 11,000 to 13,000 feet altitude all day. Pretty cool.
