If 103 miles sounds like a little too much to bike, don’t fret, there are a few other options for those of us who still want to partake in the healthy and exciting event!
2014 will mark the events 29th year!
A little info from their website:
Miles of history pass under your wheels as you bicycle down the ancient Turquoise Trail through the old mining towns of Madrid and Golden, across the mineral rich Ortiz and San Pedro Mountains, across the Estancia Valley through the villages of Cedar Grove and Stanley and on to the very old village of Galisteo, and back into scenic Santa Fe.
You can choose to ride the Century (103 miles), the Half-Century (50 miles) or a 20 mile out and back ride. The Santa Fe Century is the first major cycling event in the spring in the Southwest. The weather in May is moderate and provides an opportunity to shed the winter gear for some wonderful springtime riding in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
The mission of the Santa Fe Century is to get people interested in cycling and to have fun doing it! Our ride is 100% volunteer lead and organized. We welcome riders of all ages and abilities.
The Map of the Routes can be found here.
