Nov 14, Thursday from Sandia RR Sta for those interested.  Same 10.30 time.  Please register if you are coming.  This is weather dependent so make sure you check twitter before heading to ABQ.  Also, this is a winter ride and it is for all levels.  We will stay together and ride tempo.   Route to be determined based on weather, who shows up, and MikeD and me at the start.  Several routes are available.  The Paseo de la Mesa we did last year,  a south ABQ loop, and a climbing ride.  (GPS links are on the ride page.)  All rides are about 35 miles with between 1K and 2K climbing.  Regardless of which ride we do we will try to do the others later in the year.  Thanks to MikeD for planning these rides and mapping the routes.

Nov 16, Saturday at 11am. The Santa Fondo is back.  Courtesy of Irena Ossola (see below).  While the standard route is Galisteo Loop, in the past we have gone out to Galisteo and then returned making it an out-back of about 40.  The racer boys and gals will be long gone when we get to Galisteo and we usually get back around the same time they do.  Of course our own racers may want to go all the way around, your choice.  I will probably be content with 40, but depending on wind etc.  This ride repeats on the following Saturday, the 23rd, so IF the weather for the 16th deteriorates then we will push it to the 23rd.  Again check the twitter before heading out.

Santa Fondo description.

From Santa Fe brewing company (near the highway) on NOVEMBER 16 & 23.  It will be at 11am (to hopefully avoid the cold) and be about 50 miles as we’ll ride the galisteo loop.

A free beer to every rider and I’ll bring Larabars for everyone too!  There is also supposed to be a food truck after the ride.

No official support, so bring a flat kit and cell phone.  I’ll have my dad drive a car behind for emergencies.
