Gran Fondo: Taos-Mora-Angel Fire

From Jennifer Buntz down in Albuquerque. As I keep asking, why can't we get our community to support stuff like this?

Gran Fondo: Taos-Mora-Angel Fire

There are many exciting new aspects for this July 6 event.  First, the route is new!  For 2013 it will cover the southern enchanted circle loop, a really wonderful alternative that I think you will enjoy.  Second, another distance has been added.  There are 105, 84 and 46 mile distances to chose from.  Last, for those who haven't prepared for a ride like this before (or in a while), there are training guidelines posted at Training Peaks.

Specifically designed for the 105, 84 and 46 mile distances, these guides are available via Training Peaks.  It is free to set up an account at Training Peaks, where you can gain access to one of the training plans.  Normally $25.00 dollars, all riders who register for the Gran Fondo: Taos-Mora-Angel Fire will receive a coupon code for a 40% discount on the training plan of their choice.
Just check your registration confirmation email for the code!

The plans all start April Fool's Day (no fooling!).  You can sign-up for the Gran, Medio or Micro Fondo at

All proceeds from this event will go to the Taos Sports Alliance who's mission is to bring more sporting events to the youth of Taos County. 

Watch for updates; I hope to have some hotel discounts to pass on to you soon.  The ride is on Saturday of the July 4 weekend.  With the 4th falling on a Thursday, it is perfect weekend for a family trip to Taos, with a little bike ride thrown in for good measure.

Send questions or concerns my way!
