SUSTAINABILITY

Bike Ranch is committed to sustainability in all aspects of its design and function. Our goal is to be a model for resource conservation in the desert, and we are striving to be one of only a handful of Platinum LEED designated hotels in the United States.


Cycling represents a new ethos in  fitness that also embraces a greater awareness of the natural world.  As the most energy efficient means of transportation, cycling is not only good for our health, it's good for the health of our environment.  Every mile traveled by bicycle instead of an automobile saves the atmosphere a pound of carbon dioxide, and thanks to more than 900 miles of bike lanes, including the 131-mile urban Loop, Bike Ranch guests will be able to experience Tucson from their bikes instead of cars.


Our desert campus across from Saguaro National Park will have abundant open space and natural habitat with biological connectivity for wildlife. Like the historic lodges that co-exist with many of the great parks, the Bike Ranch will be a supportive and a beneficial neighbor to Saguaro Park.
