As I head out of town I pass by the Tucson Bike Church, which is a walk-in metal sculpture made of bike parts, stained-glass windows and musical chimes, details that at a glance may not be noticed by passers-by.
A Mountain is also known as Sentinel Mountain. It is approximately 2,897 ft (883 m) peak in the Tucson Mountains southwest of downtown Tucson, Arizona.
Once I turn on to Kenny Road, I get more great views and all sorts of landmarks. Kenny Road goes behind the Tucson Mountains, so you get to see more of the natural environment with landmarks have little to nothing in between them.
One of the more popular landmarks is Old Tucson Studios which is an old film studio where old westerns uses to be filmed. Today Old Tucson is a western theme park on the tourist trail, most locals know it for the Nightfall event that takes place around Halloween, when Old Tucson is transformed into a haunted theme park with zombies and ghost from the past.
Gates Pass is a narrow pass over the Tucson Mountains frequently used by most local Tucson cyclist. Most local cyclist like it because it is a really nice short steep climb, with some amazing views. Not only are the views great, but it a quick way for cyclist to escape from downtown and get to some less busy roads and add some extra miles to their ride.
