Ride Description

This year the ride will be a 6 day dual sport ride in the mountains of northern New Mexico. The ride will include the Santa Fe National Forest and Carson National Forest. Riding will be staged from three areas in New Mexico: Santa Fe, Red River just north of Taos and Abiquiu which is the middle of nowhere. We will be spending 7 nights in motels and all riding is staged from our motels. The ride is mostly forest mountain roads with some back highway to connect places and a bit of trail riding. This Roulette is all about exploring the greatness of New Mexico.

Come with your explorer mind and be prepared for some adversity.

OK since many of you like to study more detail about the ride, below are the ride maps.

I put these ride maps on the web page because I know a few of you love looking at the ride detail and dreaming about the ride. At first glance these maps do not look so impressive, but they are way cool. If you start zooming in, you can see the ride in incredible detail. I have spent a ton of hours sorting through the details of the ride for each day, so for those of you that enjoy this sort of thing, well enjoy!

Things to think about before signing up

Is this ride right for you?

This is an explorer's ride. The nature of exploring is that much is unknown, so things can go wrong. The routes are unproven and sometimes don't work due to obstacles or just plain errors. The day can turn long and test your abilities and patience. You will find yourself in the mix of many rider's opinions that know how to fix the problem. You need to be able to find the fun in that. The riding can be fun, challenging, fast, slow, scenic and hard. It is all about the riding.

Are you right for this ride?

When something goes wrong on a ride, would your riding friends say that you are more likely to need help or more likely to give help? You should be in the more likely to offer help camp. This ride is filled with riders that are more likely to give help, so most of the time the riders never need help. Additionally there is all the normal stuff: come prepared to maintain your bike, fix your bike on the trail, repair flat tires, deal with bad weather and rain and make a joke or two.

How does the ride navigation work?

This is a self-led GPS ride; all riding is on your own. You are responsible for your own riding. You will be given a GPS map file and instructions on how to use your Garmin GPS unit. People will hook up in small groups of less than 6 riders and tend to ride together. You are not encouraged to ride alone. You are responsible for your own riding and yourself.

(see my ride Navigation Video)

How do I make the GPS stuff so easy?

I develop very high quality custom ride maps for our ride. They come from much of what I and others have ridden. I take the best from all my rides and make new ones.

Note from me, gpsKevin

My goal for this ride is simple: great riding! You can count on great routes and places to ride.

But, in addition, the ride is about discovering new places, meeting new friends, seeing new parts of the world.
