Last Thursdays ride took us to the beautiful Valles Caldera for a selection of rides that varied from an “out and back” to a metric century finishing in Bernalillo.

Due to the complex nature of the one way ride, it was necessary to shuttle those riders doing the Metric Century from Santa Fe to the Caldera start point, while the “out and back riders” drove to the start point.

It was a gorgeous day for these classic rides of which, even the easiest were not insignificant, starting at 9000ft elevation and at least 1000ft of vertical climbing.

I mounted my GoPro Camera on my bike and just let it roll through the start of the ride, some shots of the B- and C riders climbing and the groups organizing, which helps to get the feeling of one of the SOB rides.

Here’s a link to the YouTube Video:
