Years ago I did the Santa Fe Century and the next year my wife and I did one of the shorter rides. IMHO, it is a neat and inexpensive Century, one where later - in 200(?) - Shifty below claims 2005 - Nora and I and a bunch of BFN'rs met for dinner the night before. My wife and I are thinking about the 20 mile ride, which, at 77yo, likely will be the max she will be able to do.
Here are some really old pictures.
SANTA FE CENTURY, 2000
If you have never been to Santa Fe, it is a great visitors town.

Anyway, if interested, plan ahead!!
(Santa Fe is at 7,000 feet. The area around Santa Fe - Taos, etc., is quite scenic (ask Terex). However, the SFC goes east into the plains, not the mountains, and is also scenic).
