WaterCycle RideBut what is the WaterCycle Ride???? Bikes

It is an easy 5-mile circular route in Sierra Vista, AZ that uses multi-use paths for bicyclists, joggers or walkers. Great for the whole family! What is really cool are interactive stops along the way to learn about water.

To enter for prizes during the month of April, scan the QR code at each stop - if you answer the question correctly, you can enter for a prize!

Where is it?

You can start anywhere but the best place is in the Sears parking lot at the Mall at Sierra Vista on Hwy 92. Look for the sign near the big stormwater detention basin on the east side of the Sears parking lot. After reading about stormwater and taking the quiz, ride south on Hwy 92 to Buffalo Soldier Trail (BST). Ride west on BST and take the cut through where the path turns right (east) through a natural area. There are 5 signs along that section. The path connects to Avenida Cochise which you can ride back to the Mall. FUN! FUN! FUN!

Why be Water Wise? Arizonans have long known that water is our most precious resource. Many residents presently enjoy a reliable, relatively inexpensive supply of high quality water. However, water use has begun to exceed water recharge in some areas of Cochise County, generating concern about depleting water resources. To ensure adequate water supplies for the future, all of us need to be more water wise. This web page contains tips for saving water indoors and outdoors. These water wise ideas can not only help you save money on your water bill, but also benefit the community by conserving this precious resource. Water Wise is a public/privately funded University of Arizona Cooperative Extension water conservation educational program. We are here to help you do what you want, but more water efficiently. Please let us help you!

Thank you to our Water Wise Partners - we can't do it without you!
