Gila Monsters in New Mexico
This is a long distance, timed cycling event that is fun yet has a competitive edge for the self, amateur and recreational cyclists. The course follows the iconic Tour of the Gila “Gila Monster” road race, covering some of the most stunning routes in New Mexico. Roving sag wagons and rest stations will provide extra support to get you to that finish line. The beautiful, quaint mining village of Pinos Altos provides the end of the trail. Be sure to stop at the Little Toad Creek Inn and Tavern’s rest stop for much merriment. Gran Fondo distance is 103 miles. Medio Fondo is 70 miles. Maybe you want a smaller challenge. If so consider the Micro Fondo at 50 miles or the Nano Fondo which is 32 miles. A shuttle will be available for the two shorter events. It will leave Gough Park in Silver City at 7:30 am.

|Gran Fondo||Gough Park, Silver City||8:00 am|
|Micro Fondo||Hi-Spot, Hwy 152||8:30 am|
|Nano Fondo||Camp Thunderbird, Hwy 35|
