Jimmy did a great job showing us around the neighborhoods of Tucson. He was very informative and we left knowing a lot more about the history of Tucson. Sunday is the day to go no traffic easy to get around the city. Great job Jimmy.

We went on the bike tour this spring. It's best to go when the weather is not too hot. Loved the scenery and not too many hills.

I'm glad you enjoyed the route. I have a few variations, but there is always a lot of overlap. After scouting the route for about a month, years ago, I remember thinking, "Wow, that seems to fit together nicely." Oh, can't promise bakery, sometimes they are closed or slammed, but most of the time it is part of the tour.
