Tour de Ruidoso, NM, Hospice Century, Sat, Sept 27, 2008
This is the 2nd annual ride. The first year was awesome, and this will surely be better. Very well supported with great eats during and after the ride. 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.
Road conditions are good... no new chip-seal this year.
Ruidoso is ~120 miles north of El Paso, and 150 miles SW of Albuquerque. Hope to see you there!
