Registration Opens January 1, 2018
Please come back and visit our website at the end of December 2017 to see all the details for our 2018 ride.
THANK YOU 2017 RIDERS AND VOLUNTEERS!
Congratulations to all the riders who participated in this year's Santa Fe Century and a big Thank You to the 130 volunteers who supported the ride and made it possible.
We went into the weekend with scattered snow flurries and lower temperatures. Saturday we kicked off registration and packet pickup with our first ever Vintage Bicycle Celebration. Sunday greeted us with wide open blue skies and a high of 75 degrees - we couldn't have asked for better conditions! It was a lovely day to be out on the course and afterwards to sit outside in the Celebration Corral to enjoy a meal from Cowgirl BBQ and drinks from Santa Fe Brewing Company.
Rider photos are available here from Sundance Images.
We welcomed 2200 registered riders:
35% rode the Century
47% rode the Half-Century
7% rode the 20 Mile Ride
7% raced in the Gran Fondo
4% raced in the Medio Fondo
Riders of all ages and abilities joined in the fun, with the average age of 53.
Riders came from 37 US States, of which the top five were New Mexico, Colorado, Texas, Arizona and California! In addition to riders from the US, we had riders from Columbia, Canada and Israel.
The timed-rider results can be found here.
Thank you to the 130 volunteers that made the ride possible. Your hard work, enthusiasm and energy are much appreciated. We look forward to seeing you all again next year.
Bicycle New MexicoMiles of history pass under your wheels as you bicycle down the ancient Turquoise Trail through the old mining towns of Madrid and Golden, across the mineral rich Ortiz and San Pedro Mountains, across the Estancia Valley through the villages of Cedar Grove and Stanley and on to the very old village of Galisteo, and back into scenic Santa Fe.
The Santa Fe Century is the first major cycling event in the spring in the Southwest. The weather in May is moderate and provides an opportunity to shed the winter gear for some wonderful springtime riding in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
The mission of the Santa Fe Century is to get people interested in cycling and to have fun doing it! Our ride is primarily volunteer led and organized. We welcome riders of all ages and abilities.
