Ride is approximately 50-70+ miles in length, with options to return to the start location at Milagro Coffee Y Espresso (1733 E University Ave, Las Cruces, NM 88001, across from the NMSU Pan American Center) at any time. Departure time is 0800 between Labor Day and Memorial Day (Cooler months), and 0700 from Memorial Day through Labor Day. This is a NO DROP ride: a member of ZVC will ensure we wait for anyone continuing on the ride. Pace varies depending on time of the year but is generally faster during the summer months. Ride size varies from 15-40 riders, depending on temperature and winds. 🙂 All riders are welcome. See ZiaVelo Google Groups page for more info.

The RA Racing Apparel/BMC team is now running Sat/Sun training rides that start from Mellow Velo at 132 E. Marcy St in Santa Fe.
9AM departure (maybe 8am in summer). All are welcome, however the rides are not 'no drop' rides, there will be some regrouping points or short cuts to take. They tend to be fast-paced (18mph or more average) and slower riders will get dropped. The routes are just over 50 miles and there is usually one stop mid-way through. Since the rides are always the same there is no announcement beforehand. The Saturday ride is known as the "Prison Loop". The Sunday ride is the reverse Galisteo loop, the reverse direction of the Santa Fe Century 50-mile route. For updated information call Mellow Velo at (505) 995-3823.
