8/15 taking a break
8/22 Placitas 6:45PM Preride at 6:30 ~45 mins
Directions, Get off I-25 in Bernalillo at exit 242 and go east up the hill abotu 2 miles.to the first USFS parking lot. Park and ride the dirt road (Forest Loop Rd.) back west about 200m to the finish.
Course: Cool little loop featuring a bit of fenceline and a lot of little used trails in the Lowere Placitas area. Lap is about 10mins long. I am hoping to get some Santa Fe folks to drive down.
No entry fee but if you would like to bring a voluntary donation of say $10 to help with my expenses that would be cool.
8/29 Gravel Grinder Crit at Baloon Fiesta Park. (See Old Fashioned Cyclocross Series below)
9/5 taking a break
Informal CX practice "races", set up by Ryan Travelstead of Nero Veloce and me.
9/12 Deadman 6:15 PM preride at 6PM, shorter easier course.
9/19 Deadman 6:15 PM preride at 6PM, longer course in Deadman area with more running.
Deadman directions: Take I-40 east from Albuquerque to the Tijeras exit, the road will "Y" right off the exit. Go right. (Left takes you to Sandia Peak) The road will curve to the right and come to a stoplight. There will be a Subway across the street on your right. Go straight on through the light and up NM337 for about 8 miles. About 1/2 mile past Pine Flat Picnic area look for a small dirt road on the left. Park along the road or along 337 without blocking the gate and ride about 1/4 mile down the dirt road to the start. Beautiful area with grassy meadows and big ponderosa pine trees. Nice and cool up there too.
9/26 Pine Flat 6PM preride at 5:45PM, big loop between Pine Flat and Deadman
Pine Flat Directions: Same as above but only go about 7.5 miles up and look for the Pine Flat Picnic Area signs on your left.
Tentative Tuesday CX Series Info (Part of the Old Fachioned CX Series)
Entry fee for the Tusaday CXs will be $12 per race, 18 & under free. The New Mexico Old Fashioned Series will be insured through bikeraces.org. USAC licenses, annual or one day, are not required. I have a Square reader now so you can pay with a credit card at the race.
8/29 Gravel Grinder Crit at Baloon Fiesta Park. 6:45PM Preride at 6:30 ~45 mins
Directions: Get off I-25 at the Alameda exit. Go west on Alameda to San Mateo, turn right and head north to Balloon Fiesta Parkway, turn west, and park in lot at the end of the road. Walk or ride your bike (with helmet) west through the narrow gate to the west side of the park. There will be restrooms on the east side of the park. Course will use part of the road crit and some gravel roads to the north. Fast and drafty with nothing very twisty. You coud consider it a gravel grinder on a very sort course or a very non technical cross race with no running. A cross bike is best, but you could use a road bike or a MTB. Several short hills.
Informal CX practice 9/12-9/26 see above.
10/3 Hays Apple Farm 6PM preride at 5:45PM
10/10 Hays Apple Farm 5:45PM preride at 5:30PM
Hays Directions: Take I-25 South from Albuquerque to the NM47/ Broadway Exit (215). Go south 7 miles to Bosque Farms. Turn Right on Esperanza at the Blake's Lottaburger. Go west (right) 1/4 mile to the farm.
Course winds through the trees of Mr Hays' apple orchard and goes up onto the ditchroad for some fast bits. The cottonwoods should be turning yellow to add a nice backdrop. We may be dodging some fallen apples as Mr. Hays is expecting a good harvest this year. If you want apples or honey (both are luscious) get there before the shop closes at 5PM. Apples are usually about $1.50/lb. I will have some samples.
10/17 Sunnislope 5:45PM preride at 5:30PM
10/24 Sunnislope 5:30PM preride at 5:15PM
11/1 Sunnislope 5:30PM preride at 5:15PM (Wednesday because Tuesday is Haloween)
In a car: Exit I-25 on Rio Bravo and go west about a mile to 2nd. Take 2nd south about 1.6 miles to to Sunnyslope St. then go west (right) to Barr then go south (left) 300ft and park where you can without blocking anyone's driveway.
On a bike: take the bosque bike path south past Rio Bravo until just before it curves east following the diversion channel. Start will be up on the levee about 400ft north of the diversion channel.
Courses will be on gravel roads, dirt roads and trails, with a little ungroomed grass.
