Tucson completes “The Loop”


Over the St. Patrick’s Day weekend, Tucson and Pima County celebrated the completion of the “The Loop”a 131 mile shared use trail that encircles the this terrific Sonoran Desert city and provides extensions to the south, north, and northwest.

This is a perfect example of what can be done by a community to enhance non-motorized transportation in its midst. Combined with a numbers bike lanes, a bike share program, bike parking, and numerous other infrastructure, it is clear why Tucson is rated so highly by the League of American Bicyclists – Gold ranking, along with 14 businesses/schools also ranked. Congratulations on the completion of this terrific project and we look forward to utilizing The Loop during our next visit to Tucson!
