Beginner Mountain Bike ride from Sierra Vista Trailhead on Anthony Gap Road
May is Bike Month, so let's start it with a great beginner mountain bike ride! A group beginner ride will head out at 8am (northbound on the Sierra Vista Trail).
The ride will probably travel 8-10 miles and last about 1.5 hours.
There are NO bathrooms, water or other services at the site.
Directions: Near the high point on NM 404 (between mile markers 5 and 6) there is a dirt road with a gate on the south side. Close the gate behind you. (It's unlikely, but if a group beats us to the site, we'll find a location to the north of the highway.)
These are real mountain bike rides so you should bring a good, properly working mountain bike, helmet, water, tubes, tools, etc., and the know how to use them.
Brought to you by Velo Paso, EP Bike Month, GeoBetty and the Borderland Mountain Bike Association.
Approximate Distance: 7-10 Miles
Event Difficulty: Beginner
