Very cool! I wouldn't mind a "winter" ride there but the thought of the heat in the summer just sounds oppressive. Although the 95* heat and 98% humidity hear is nasty too.

I've spent lots of time in the deserts of AZ and NM in summer. The very hottest I've ever been in my life was in FL with 98* and 99% humidity.

AZ heat is brutal, but it can be handled when it's 'dry'. Wet, humid heat is far worse in my experience. I'll take by preference a dry 105*f to a humid 90* any day.

Totally loving the pics of Tucson's trails, too. I had no idea they've got so many!

nice klein! Tucson is beautiful we have some of the best weather in my opinion. hot yes, but it usually doesn't last long. you get used to it. and the biking community here is huge tons of places to ride the whole city basically.
