The Enchanted Circle Century Bike Tour offers participants the opportunity to tour some of the most scenic areas in northeasten New Mexico.
You will begin your tour in Red River (elevation 8,750 ft.). Red River is an old mining town that boomed nearly a century ago when gold was discovered in surrounding mountains. Red River, which sits in the midst of the million plus acre Carson National Forest, has long been a popular four-season resort area. It is noted for hiking, fishing, and bicycle touring opportunities in the summer and Nordic, Alpine skiing and snowmobiling opportunities in the winter. The Sangre de Cristo Mountains will change from forest conditions to a semi-arid environment much like the rest of New Mexico as the participants ride around the Enchanted Circle.
Packet pickup begins on Friday, September 8,2017 from 9-5pm & Saturday, September 9, 2017 from 9-5pm.
There will be six rest stops as well as three SAG wagons and an EMS vehicle traveling the 100-mile route to assist riders. Since the weather will be cool at the beginning of the race (mid-high 40's) and 30+ degrees warmer as the day progresses, riders will need to plan on layering their clothing. There will be a "clothes drop" at the end of the first 13 miles as well as every rest stop can be a clothes drop.
Come and bring your family to Red River! The weather and the mountains are great this time of the year. There's plenty of lodging and Red River is known for being a very family and dog friendly town!
