The roads of GFNY Santa Fe will take riders through the spectacular and diverse terrain of the southwest. Both routes start in downtown Santa Fe.
The 81 mile Long course, with 7,500 feet of climbing, will crown the winners after the almost 15 mile climb to the finish at Ski Santa Fe. At a peak elevation of 10,350 feet, this climb will be sure to get the heart pumping! Riders will transition from the plains and rolling hills of the grasslands and piñon-juniper woodland to the cottonwoods of the picturesque village of Tesuque. The long course finishes in the spruce, fir and aspen forest of the high mountains, with huge views of the Rio Grande valley nearly 5,000 feet below. Riders of the long course can choose either to ride the 15 miles downhill or take a shuttle back to the start. It is recommended to bring your climbing gears for this route, no grades are steeper than 12%, but the thin air will make it seem steeper!
We want to thank our sponsors for helping make GFNY Santa Fe possible.
