Sierra Vista Touring Cyclists' Camp

When U.S. Bicycle Route 90 was designated through Sierra Vista, Arizona, the city established an indoor touring cyclists' camp in a city-owned building to provide a place for cyclists to stay and encourage them to stop in the city. Touring cyclists riding through southeast Arizona will receive a warm welcome at the Sierra Vista Touring Cyclists Camp.
