Tour of the Rio Grande Valley Lives Again!

Join the Bicycle Coalition of New Mexico on September 18 in the beautiful North Rio Grande Valley, in Los Ranchos de Albuquerque, for the Tour of the Rio Grande Valley!

Go to www.TORGV.com to register, see the route, etc.

Choose the 25, 50, 65, or 100 mile routes.

Lodging and dining choices in the Village of Los Ranchos can be found at http://www.villr.com/lodging.htm and http://www.villr.com/restaurants.htm

TORGV was started by the New Mexico Wheelmen in the 1970’s and ran for over 20 years. At its height, TORGV attracted thousands of riders and was the premier bicycle tour in New Mexico. The Bicycle Coalition of New Mexico (BCNM) is proud to bring back TORGV starting in  2011. TORGV 2011 takes riders on scenic flat roads through the Rio Grande Valley. The longer routes pass through Isleta, Los Lunas, Belen and return to Los Ranchos. Money raised from TORGV 2011 will fund  BCNM staff and its successful bicycle education, promotion, and advocacy programs.

Of course, to tune up for the TORGV, you can do the Red River Century Tour on Sept. 11th.
