  • Anderson Racing Adventures
    Serial cross-country runner and duathlete Kate Anderson would sometimes trek nearly 100 miles to attend a race, until she decided to start hosting her own. In 2011, she gathered a team of fellow runners around her cause and founded Anderson Racing Adventures. Since then, the company has devised events ranging from cycling and swimming duathlons through rugged natural terrain to seasonally themed costume runs. Anderson's team is always present at each race: a former triathlete distributes medals, a former competitive runner guides participants through the course, and a former coach times the events.

  • Tucson Bike Tours
    As Tucson Bike Tours' groups and guides cruise the city, they're also rolling through history. While traversing a modern wire mesh bridge in the shape of a rattlesnake, they can look down and see the train tracks that transformed Tucson from a tiny village to a bustling city. In the neighborhood of Presidio, they can take in both ancient Hohokam settlements and the birthplace of the world's greatest modern marvel, the chimichanga. The route includes plenty of enviable residential neighborhoods, too, from the adobe homes of Barrio Viejo to the sculpture-studded Dunbar Springs.

  • Go Fast Rentals
    The dunes aren’t going to ride themselves. That’s why GoFast Rental puts off-roaders behind the wheels of buggies such as the RZR XP 4 900 EPS that seats up to four. For those trundling dirt paths, they offer similar buggies as well as quads. With dirt and sand covered, the only thing left is the wet stuff. To crest waves, they slip patrons into V-drive wakeboarding boats and jet skis.

  • Cactus Bike
    City streets. Lakeside trails. Untamed mountains. One of the world's most versatile vehicles, the bike can travel across an incredible variety of terrain and most frozen custards. But despite this, no one cycle fits every job. That's where Cactus Bike comes in. Its locations in Chandler and Ahwatukee contain a jungle of mountain, road, BMX, cruisers, and other bike types. Each shop is also home to expert technicians who customize, or in some cases, completely rebuild these cycles. Cactus Bike's team helps clients select and customize the perfect bike for their chosen activity. Maybe it's creating a road bike for competition, or perhaps a commuter bike that's comfortable enough to ride to and from the office. An extensive rental fleet lets unsure patrons try out different types, including downhill, freeride, and cross-country mountain bikes that renters can ride straight from the Ahwatukee location to nearby South Mountain. Once a choice has been made, the shop's technicians maintain them for long lives on the road with a full slate of tune-up, wheel, and suspension services.
