Santa Fe Seniors on Bikes (SOBs) are a group of road cycling enthusiasts who meet at least once a week, typically on Thursday mornings, to ride the Santa Fe area. Our trips are in the order of 30 miles, but opportunities always exist to extend, or to turn around at any point along the way.
We publish a ride list each year, based on a membership meeting in February.
We have around 80 members, with a 50% mix of males and females.
Most rides see around 15 - 20 members and we have a reputation for enjoying socializing over coffee after, and occasionally during, our rides.

The policy of the Santa Fe Seniors On Bikes cycling club is to obey all traffic laws. This includes each individual rider obeying all traffic signals. Riding single file on the right side of the road and using hand signals are encouraged. Helmets are required. It is our intent for bike riders to behave as vehicles. These practices will help keep our rides safe and will set an example for other cyclists.
If this sounds like a group you would like to take part in, please check out our ride calendar and fill in the Contact Form or e-mail us at:
