Tuesday, SOB Riders set out under bright blue skies on a 60 mile pilgrimage to El Santuario de Chimayo. We departed DeVargas Center, picked up riders at Taco Bridge, Tesuque, Camel Rock, and Cities of Gold and regrouped at the infamous SOB Rest Stop – The Pojoaque Phillip’s 66 Gas Station.

Its back in the saddle time for a series of climbs toward Chimayo; and the rocket descent to El Santuario de Chimayo (Ed behind the lens).

At El Santuario de Chimayo, it was time for reflection and to enjoy the serenity of this historic site. El Santuario de Chimayó is a Roman Catholic church in Chimayó, New Mexico, United States. This shrine, a National Historic Landmark, is famous for the story of its founding and as a contemporary pilgrimage site. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/El_Santuario_de_Chimayo

Leaving the Santuario, we again picked up our nemesis, Niltsi, who punished us all the way back to Santa Fe with brutal 13-15 MPH headwinds! Too late for lunch, we were content to know we finished the ride!! Thanks to Bob for putting the ride together!!
