      1: Tucson is absolutely a year-round riding destination. Don't be afraid of it in the summer. When it's hot in town, it'll be considerably cooler up on the mountain. Case in point: When it was 108 degrees in town, it was 70 degrees at the summit on the day I rode Aspen Draw. During the winter months, the summit trails might actually be snowed it, but the trails down low are going to be full tilt.
      2: Bike choice: There is enough terrain here for all bikes. You can bring the DH rig down Aspen Draw, and most of Mount Lemmon can be ridden on a mid to long travel trail bike. Roadies love it here too, and you'll pass scores of them making the 27 mile, 7,000 vertical foot climb as you drive up Lemmon to ride trail.
      3: Mount Lemmon is massive, and there are several true backcountry opportunities on the mountain. Consider using Homegrown MTB as a shuttle or guide service if you've never been. Tara, Art and the rest of the team will make your trip that much better for it. They even offer bike rentals.
