This is a new century that takes place on roads I ride all the time.
Elevations are 6000-7500ft, and the course scenery varies from tall
pines and mountains and grassy (and presently wildflower covered)
plains. Pretty challenging, but the course is routed so that the
steepest and longest parts are downhill rather than up. Weather should
be good... dry and sunny with a high of ~70 would be normal.
Ruidoso is ~120 miles north of El Paso, and 150 miles SW of
Hope to see some of you there... if you have any questions I'll do my
best to answer them. I'm not affiliated with the ride, but I live here...
