Nestled in the creek bottoms below the Santa Rita & Patagonia Mountain's, Patagonia is a small town of 700 residents just 18 miles away from Nogales, Mexico; Patagonia is the gateway to some of Arizona's best gravel roads. The San Rafael Valley is comprised of private and public lands. It's scarcely traveled and almost unknown to many cyclists. Patagonia is one of the borderlands best kept secrets. The town itself sits at 4,058' elevation, making it a fantastic training destination for the ever growing gravel race schedule.
