Cycling

ATRISCO VISTA BLVD, ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO
Cycling ( 5K, 10K) Time Trials

Out and back (3.1 & 6.2 miles)
Start and finish at Atrisco Vista Boulevard (Just off of Interstate 40). Relatively a flat course with an excellent surface and a great view of Sandia Peak.

LAS CAMPANAS
Cycling (20K, 40K) Road Race

Las Campanas (Spanish for “The Bells”) is a beautiful, private golf course and exclusive residential community outside of Sante Fe, and about an hour’s drive north of Albuquerque.  Sante Fe was established in 1607 and is the 2nd oldest city in the US, and remains a showcase city for historical monuments, artists and culinary establishments.  The 8.8 mile loop course around the Sante Fe community is safe, quiet, fun and challenging (seeing about 500’ elevation gain per lap) all while exemplifying the New Mexico rolling landscape.  While safety was the primary goal for selecting this course (the secluded roads and convenience of closing them) the scenery and the challenge are major pluses.  What’s more, the residents of Las Campanas support Albuquerque and Sante Fe’s cycling community.  See you in 2019 at Las Campanas!

Course is through the exclusive Las Campanas neighborhood circling their golf course. The road winds gently except for one turn and it rolls up and down with one short climb slightly over a 5% incline.
