It's Santa Fe Century Week!!
New venue, same great ride!
The Santa Fe Century is usually the first major cycling event in the Spring in the Southwest. However, due to COVID-19 precautions and restrictions, the 2021 event will be held on October 10th. Fall is a great time to ride a bike in New Mexico, and will offer riders a fantastic riding experience through the beautiful rural countryside outside of Santa Fe. Also, it’s chile roasting season!
2021 will be the 35th edition of the Santa Fe Century! While a lot has changed in 35 years some things about the Century remain the same:
- One of the most beautiful courses in the country starting and finishing in downtown Santa Fe and through the Ortiz Mountains and the Galisteo basin
- One of the most affordable cycling events in the Southwest
- Ride/Distance options of Century (100 mile tour), the Gran Fondo (100 mile timed ride), the Half-Century (50 mile tour), Medio Fondo (50 mile timed ride) or a 25 mile route.
- Outstanding food stops manned by experienced volunteers who return year after year
- Police escort out of town
- Great camaraderie with thousands of fellow cyclists
