Rowe Mesa RunHundred (170km/105mi…) 🦏 @ Rowe Mesa
May 11 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

More of a challenge than anything else, this is a SELF-Supported attempt at completing 2 revolutions of the Rowe Mesa Gravélon route, leaving at the same time as the other riders at 9am. Also, this could be a great opportunity for folks to recon the course for the following weekend’s Santa Fe Century’s “Gravelón” & “Gravelito” events.
Hope to catch you out there, weather-permitting. 🦏

Super Volcano Brevet 300km 🌲⛰️ @ NM Rail Runner (ZIa Station)

This is a fully self-supported ride for your personal enjoyment and is TAKEN AT YOUR RISK!

A 300km excursion from the Zia Road Rail Runner Station in Santa Fe to Los Ranchos/Journal Center Rail Runner Station (in Albuquerque) via north to Abiquiu, passing through many locales in the Sangre de Cristo Mountain Range and the surrounding areas, then heading south to the Los Ranchos/Journal Center Rail Runner Stationcatching the train back to Santa Fe.

Departure time from the Zia Road Rail Runner Station will be on Saturday, June 8th, 2024 at about 6:00am as we will have about 12hrs. or so to complete the brevet. Multiple resupply stops will be available along the route, but time spent at stops will not be too long as we will have to maintain an average of tempo speed of about 25km/hr (15mi/hr) for the *6:35pm train to complete the endeavor.

A front and rear light is recommended as we will be arriving home as the dark will be upon us. We will be passing several stops for food, but it would be advised to bring your burritos, meal replacements, electrolytes, etc. to compensate for some areas. While the brevet will mostly be a no-drop ride, please be aware that riders who are attempting to complete the full route will have to maintain a certain pace to catch the train. Riders may be satisfied with a shorter ride such as just reaching Albuquerque.

Of course, please be aware that this is a fully self-supported ride for your personal enjoyment and is taken at your own risk! If you feel that you may be limited in your abilities to complete the ride, have someone ready to pick you up along the route as this ride is dependent that we catch the train back to Santa Fe in due time. Sirius Cycles will assume no responsibility for any mishaps or accidents during this ride.

*If we are not able to catch the 6:35pm train, there is another one at 8:38pm.

*If there is any chance of rain showers, high wind speeds or other factors that will not allow the brevet to occur, we will not be participating.
