Kitt Peak Road Bike Ride – Tucson, Arizona

Kitt Peak is home to one of the world’s largest observatories and favorite bike ride in Tucson, Arizona.

Start from Tucson, Arizona and it works out to be a century ride. The actual climb up Kit Peak is 12 miles long.

The 360 degree views at the top of this sacred Native American mountain are well worth the climb.

Another option is to drive out to Kitt Peak Road from Tucson and do the 24 mile climb.

    Was wondering what the pavement was like on this road for cycling? Is it worth the drive out or should I stick with Mt. Lemmon and other closer Tucson rides. thanks

      It is OK. Mt Memmon is much better. I would stick with Mt Lemmon if you are pressed for time. If you can do both great!
