Cruise the Caldera

Competition or Sporting Event

Looking into the Preserve from a free hiking trail. – Rourke McDermott

Come explore the Valles Caldera on your mountain bike! These events will provide opportunities for all ages and ability levels. At the check in station you will be given a map and the freedom to choose your own route from a number of available courses. We will be staging from two parking lots. One will be for the "cruisers" and another for the "climbers". Cruisers want relatively easy ride for the whole family. Climbers are looking for some elevation change and longer distances. All of the roads for this event will be open to both cruisers and climbers. The intent is to match each group with the trails that best suit them.
