Registration has opened for the Gila Monster Gran Fondo in Silver City 14 Oct 2017!
Come “ride like a pro for day” in the beautiful iconic Gila this fall. The Gran Fondo course follows the iconic Tour of the Gila “Gila Monster” road race, covering some of the most stunning routes in New Mexico. Three course lengths will be available this year, two of which begin and end in Silver City and a third beginning mid-course and ending in Silver City. The most challenging ride will be 115 miles, taking riders from Silver City to Bayard, through the gorgeous Mimbres Valley, by Lake Roberts, to the Gila Cliff Dwellings Visitor center and the loop back to Pinos Altos historic mining town, after amazing climbs and descents, then ending in Silver City. A Medio Fondo ride will share part of a similar course at 78 miles, with a little less demanding ride, but very challenging just the same. Then there will be a Micro Fondo beginning mid-course and capturing stunning views, climbs, and descents of the Gila at 40 miles. The Gran Fondo, with supportive sag wagons and well-appointed stops, is suitable for cyclists of all ages and ability-levels.
