Best Arizona Active Adult Communities for Bicycling

retired couple riding bikes

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.

Sun City Grand_068The Cities of Surprise and Peoria as well as the community cities of Sun City and Sun City West

The north west’s largest city Surprise has long been the home of the earliest, largest and most well known of  Arizona’s active adult communities; the Del-Webb Sun City developments. It is also one of the homes of baseball’s spring training, an event that draws thousands of visitors each year. Sports fans love the new Cardinals Football Stadium and the new Coyotes Ice Hockey Arena. The NASCAR races at Phoenix International Raceway to the south are a big favorite. The area’s growth has been astounding, filling in state and farm land from the 101 freeway to the White Tank Mountains.

Of the many Master planned communities both adult and family oriented, our favorites are below.

Trilogy at Vistancia

Happy woman outdoorsTrilogy at Vistancia Welcome to the Sonoran Desert, home of Trilogy at Vistancia. In this pristine setting you will find a gated, private community that will nourish the soul, comfort the heart and excite the imagination. Trilogy is part of the multi-generational Vistancia, named America’s Best Master Planned Community 2005.

The community has been designed to make it easy for you to create the life of your dreams and make the most of every day.  Features include the 35,000 sq ft Kiva Club, Alvea Spa and Athletic Club, the Center for Higher Learning and a championship golf club.

Trilogy Golf Course, a par 72 Gary Panks designed course has received many awards.  It is honored to have recently been recognized by Golf Digest magazine with their highest possible rating – 5 out of 5 stars. This designation, determined by combining the opinions of official Golf Digest raters with the online responses of the general public, was only given to two dozen courses in North America (and no others in Arizona). How does Golf Digest define 5-Star? Superb. Golf at its absolute best. Pay any price to play at least once in your life.”

Westbrook Village


Happy Senior Couple Outside Cooking on A Summer BarbecueWestbrook Village in Peoria
: Located just west of the 101 between Beardsley and Union Hills, Westbrook Village was designed with a small town village concept as the goal. It has achieved that while offering a broad mix within its 4000 homes.  Choose from luxurious 3 car garage homes sitting comfortably on their oversized lots to the lock and leave 900 sq ft apartment style condos overlooking the golf course.   The Village has two 18 hole golf courses and two fully equipped recreation centers, The Lakes and The Vistas.  It has two restaurants as well.  Among the many active groups in the community is the Westbrook Village Players. This theatrical group puts on 2 plays a year, spring and fall, and all interested residents are invited to participate in these presentations. Westbrook Village was built by UDC in 1983 with completion of Phase 2 in 1999.  It is well located for major shopping, convenient to big event sports facilities and fast freeway access.  It is often described as "lush with greenery" referring to the abundance of trees and shrubs and the attention to landscaping so often missing in a community.
