The Tuesday Informal Series will be starting up again on 3/14 with a “gravel” course that is doable on a MTB, Road Bike, or a CX bike, but probably best on a CX bike. I say “gravel” because there really is not much gravel, mostly hardpacked ditchroads or pavement. Info at bcdraing.com/cycling. We will use this course for that and the next three Tuesdays.
I am also planning on doing the Oak Leaf Classic Circuit again, east of the Oak Flat Picnic Area. April instead of July as there will be a NMORS at Cedro in July this year. This one will have an RSVP minumum of about 15 riders. MTB Circuit with a lot of twisty singletrack, probably about 20 miles for the faster guys. (Not the course for the NMORS race BTW, but it will share a some sections)
Info also at bcdracing.com/cycling
These will be free but if you want to bring a fiver or such to help cover my gas and such that would be cool.
My brother is organizing some Gravel Grinders in eastern NM this Spring.
4/2 Twins and Triplets in Baird, NM (Russel's Truckstop, home of Elvis, etc.)
5/13 Logan Lasoo, Logan, NM, (about 35 mi NE of Tucumcari)
There is also one near Amarillo, TX on 4/15
These are not free but have some prizes and feed support for the longer events.
I did one of the series in Shamrock TX last weekend, photos here:
