My favorite Tucson bike rental company was sold out here on my recent trip to Tucson. And it is September! Turns out all of the shops have stopped renting bikes because of Covid and the shortage.  Found and I picked up their last 56 premium! Whew! I would have been left having to buy hiking shoes to do some hiking. Bikes are far and few between now! This place as rental pickup at their central and Oro Valley Loop locations. Crazy crazy world we live in!!! In the past, I strolled into Tucson in September and had pick of the litter.

I was with a group of Adventure Cyclists last year and we rented bikes from this service. Top notch. The guy who runs it is all about customer service. The other guys in my group rented new Specialized Roubaixs and one guy had a Trek Domane. AZ is famous for goat heads that puncture the stock tires that are on most of our bikes. They put Armadillo or Gatorskins with Kevlar lined tires on there bikes. (BEFORE you do any tour in AZ, swap out your tires! On our tour last year there might have been over 20 flats!)

I rented a really light weight aluminum bike that did the job for not very much. There were a couple of people on one tour who had a shipping disaster. Easy to just rent and forget about it. They pick up and deliver to AC.
