Tucson is known as one of the most bicycle-friendly cities in the United States. This is largely due to our climate, particularly in the winter. If you plan on bicycling during the summer, it is best to get an early start and avoid the mid-day heat. Always carry plenty of water regardless of the time of year.
E-BIKES: E-bikes are permitted only where traditional bicycles are allowed. Except where motor vehicles are allowed, using the electric motor to move an e-bike without pedaling is prohibited. State laws concerning e-bikes apply within Saguaro National Park.
FACILITIES: Restrooms are available at both visitor centers during daylight hours only. Pit toilets are available at all picnic areas. Benches, bicycle racks and water fountains can be found adjacent to both visitor centers.
