Throughout the country, websites for cycling organizations and clubs share a common theme: Safety. Without a doubt the health benefits of cycling far outweigh the risks, but the risks of cycling are still real. The Bike Ranch’s trainers will be Certified League Cycling Instructors who educate all guests before they get on the road in safe cycling practice including local road laws and courtesy, and how to ride in areas with special conditions like Saguaro Park and the Tucson Urban Loop.
Bike Ranch wants to promote Tucson as the best cycling and training destination in the country. We intend to be a model of safe cycling practice and a strong lobbying voice for safe streets and community wide education. Its worthy of a side note that even though bicycle traffic has increased annually in Tucson, accidents between cars and bicycles have decreased as a percentage total as a result of more and better bike lanes throughout the city, and a committed community wide program of safe cycling instruction.
