Best Arizona Active Adult Communities for Bicycling

I noticed a few themes in the book Younger Next Year… one being STAY ACTIVE.

Not the P90X active, rather get moving and stay moving.

A bike ride is a great way to get your heart pumping.  In the Active Adult Communities, you will see lots of people headed up to the recreation center on their bikes, many of the communities have bicycle paths in and around the community as well.  Making the 55+ communities a great place to get on your bike and get moving.

A few of the Best communities with additional bike paths and trails close by…

Trilogy at Vistancia in Peoria has bicycle friendly streets and the Discovery Trail a 3.5 mile paved nature trail system meandering thru the Master Planned  Community of Vistancia.

Heritage Village IV in Scottsdale is close to the Camelback Walk, a paved multi use path along the parks and golf courses in Scottsdale.

The City of Gilbert is utilizing the natural washes for bicycle and walking paths, and are easily accessed from Trilogy at Power Ranch.

Trilogy at Verde River   Rio Verde and Tonto Verde  are right around the corner from McDowell Mountain Regional Park, where 15 miles of mountain bike trails await, trails are marked for beginner up to expert.  This is a popular location for mountain bike racing too!

MountainBrook Village in Gold Canyon is close to several different mountain bike trails, most with some hilly terrain.

Heritage Village IV

Happy 55+ couple enjoying coffee at tableIn Scottsdale Ranch,  along the shore of Lake Serena and surrounded by some of Scottsdale’s most attractive homes is Heritage Village IV.  This 55+ community consists of 162 single level townhomes with greenbelt facing patios. Although the homes share single walls, the large patios, generous sq. ft.  and high vaulted ceilings create the effect of single family homes. Built in 1984-1990 by Golden Heritage builders, the floor plans are still contemporary. The mature trees and landscaping frame the homes in a manner that new builds cannot equal.   

The subdivision has heated pools, tennis courts and a clubhouse. It has access to the multitude of amenities available within the 1,000 acres of Scottsdale Ranch, including the Scottsdale Senior Recreation Center and all of the sports fields and courts of the Scottsdale Park.  Shopping is walking distance at the Ranch’s own Mercado center.  Boating and fishing on the 42 acre Lake Serena offer a delightful change from the usual desert environment.  It is a short drive to the Mayo Clinic and the Scottsdale Health Center as well as the 90th Street shopping center.  The 101 freeway is a few short blocks from the Ranch and provides quick access to the airport, Old Town Scottsdale and all of the Phoenix valley events.
