Rio Bravo Bosque Circuit about 5mi
Parking on the west side of the River north and south of Rio Bravo Blvd, best accessed via Poco Loco St, just east of the river. Main parking area is called the Rio Bravo Riverside Picnic Area. Google Maps Placemark. Course will be CCW. We will start on the levee road so that we do not have all the riders going into the singletrack in an uncivilized manner. MTB starts should be civilized.

BCD Racing Course Marking Conventions
Red and green pinflags will always be red-right and green-left. These will mark either side of the course. Always go between them with red on the right. If you start seeing green-right you are probably riding the course backwards. I will occasionally place red and green pinflags on either side of the course if it has been a while since there has been any trail marking. These may not be near any intersection. This is just to let you know that you are still on course.
Orange pinflags show where not to go, and are usually in lines of 3 or more. They will be used to block off a trail that is not on course. Do not go in between orange pinflags. Sometimes lines of course tape also show where not to go. Lines of tape and orange pinflags mean the same thing: Do not cross.
Intersections will be marked with triangular yellow arrows. Also, just beyond the intersection, I will put up at least two sets of red and green disinflation either side of the course. Sometimes there will also be orange pinflags blocking entrances to roads/trails not on course.
Always default to the more trafficked trail or road. If you are on a major trail or road, stay on it, and do not get off on any smaller intersecting trails/roads. It is not always possible to mark every possible little trail intersecting a main trail or road. If the course DOES get off a more trafficked road/trail onto a less trafficked road/trail, there will always be some marking indicating this.
