Alan, JP, and I are planning to ride up Pacheco Canyon Road on Saturday, August 6, weather permitting, starting at 9AM at the junction on NM 592, just before the descent into Chupadero.
It is about a 6 mile ride to the top of Pacheco Canyon Road at Hyde Park Road near Big Tesuque which is about 1300 feet of climbing. The road is rocky, but otherwise not technical.
A mountain bike is still highly recommended because of the rocks. I have done this with 1.5” wide cross tires, but I would not recommend it.
The current weather forecast does not look that positive, so we are keeping an eye on it.
