Outdoor Recreation In Tucson – Rillito River ParkAug 24
Outdoor recreation and Tucson are great partners – one of the benefits of 300+ days of sunshine & mild winters. Tom Heath and I visited the Rillito River Park which…follows the Rillito River (really!?!) for miles along the base of the Catalina Foothills through Tucson.
Tucson is widely known for its great outdoor recreational opportunities, having won numerous awards from various groups & publications: League of American Bicyclists gave the Tucson/Pima County region a Gold Designation – the only metro of 1 Million+ residents to receive this high of an honor; Triathlete Magazine named Tucson the best place to live & train; Bicycle Magazine gave Tucson the #2 rating in the U.S. for bicyclists…and the list goes on.
Jaime Arrieta is a local who has combined his love for the outdoor life with his business. As proprietor of Peddler On The Path – a mobile cafe, he is a regular fixture on the Rillito River Park and outdoor events in the region. Next time you’re at the Tour de Tucson or even just strolling along the path, chances are you’ll see his van – stop on by & grab a some coffee or a powerbar. He’s a friendly guy!
