Ride Information

The roads of GFNY Santa Fe will take riders through the spectacular and diverse terrain of the southwest. Both routes start in downtown Santa Fe.


75 miles & 7,150 ft climbing

The 75 mile Long course, with 7,150 feet of climbing, will crown the winners after the almost 15 mile climb to the finish at Ski Santa Fe. At a peak elevation of 10,350 feet, this climb will be sure to get the heart pumping! Riders will transition from the plains and rolling hills of the grasslands and piñon-juniper woodland to the cottonwoods of the picturesque village of Tesuque. The long course finishes in the spruce, fir and aspen forest of the high mountains, with huge views of the Rio Grande valley nearly 5,000 feet below. Riders of the long course can choose either to ride the 15 miles downhill or take a shuttle back to the start. It is recommended to bring your climbing gears for this route, no grades are steeper than 12%, but the thin air will make it seem steeper!

LONG COURSE IS A COMPETITION: Only the finishers of the long course are eligible for category rankings and Overall and Podium awards. If you want to race and be ranked in your category, you must complete the long course. Top 10% of finishers in each age groups qualify for the Qualifier Corral at every GFNY World event for the next 380 days.


60 miles & 3,500 ft climbing

Riders of the 60 mile Medium course, with 3,500 feet of climbing, will travel a slightly shorter loop than the long course through the plains and rolling hills of the high desert. This course is perfect for the “rouleur” and finishes neatly back where it started in downtown Santa Fe.

MEDIUM COURSE IS NOT A COMPETITION: The riders of the medium course will be provided their start-to-finish time, but will not be ranked by finish time. All finish times will be listed in alphabetical order.

Prevent Injury & Ride Your Best

One of the biggest training mistakes cyclists make is leaving recovery to chance.

Cycling demands a lot from our bodies, if we’re not keeping up with maintenance, then it will eventually break down.

The best way to prevent injury while riding is with targeted mobility and strength work.

Our friends at Dynamic Cyclist have created easy to follow routines, 15 - 20 minutes in length, that will keep you riding pain free all season long.
