HSL’s Encantada at Riverside Crossing

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012

Residents of the luxury apartment complex Encantada at Riverside Crossing, 1925 E. River Road (just east of La Cholla Boulevard), have a great opportunity to enjoy desert scenery by bicycle! The resort-style complex not only offers Cannondale bicycles for residents to borrow, but a direct-access gate leading to one of the best bicycling routes in the area: Rillito River Park, which runs from Interstate 10 to Craycroft Road on the north and south banks of the riverbed. The Rillito River Park is ADA accessible and features drinking water, equestrian access, exercise stations, restrooms and, of course, loads of wildlife viewing and people-watching opportunities.

In addition, River Road features bike lanes that make zipping up the road for groceries or dinner a cinch. The Foothills Mall is also a short bicycle ride away – and a good way to build up those calf muscles going up the slope northward from River Road on La Cholla Boulevard.

Encantada residents can warm up for their bike rides or cool down in the community’s 24-hour, fully equipped fitness center.
