Mother Road Bicycle Classic Routes

RoutesThere are many choices for distances you might wish to ride.  Below we have listed the following:
Short and Sweet        9.46 miles
Short      20 miles
Medium    26 miles
The Whole Enchilada    62 miles

The above estimates of distances are from the Lexington Hotel, for which we are raising money for renovation.  These distances do not include the parade around the Courthouse Square.

There is another medium long route that is not quite the Whole Enchilada that is about 45 miles long.  You would follow the Whole Enchilada course until you got to Hwy 602.  Instead of turing right (south) towards Bread Springs, you would turn left and follow 602 back into Gallup...602 will become Second Street in Gallup.

Remember to email your registration to granfondo@care66.org

We hope to see you on the morning of the 17th at the Courthouse Square in Gallup.

Gallup Journey Column September 2011

September 2011.  By the time you read this, the work of renovating the Lexington Hotel will have begun.  We hope to announce a grand opening celebration in next month’s update.
On September 17 CARE 66 will host the second annual Mother Road Bicycle Classic.  There are four rides: Long (approx. 66 miles) Medium (approx. 40 miles), Short (approx. 20 miles) and very short (approx. 12 miles).  Proceeds from this ride will help us finish the renovation of the Lexington Hotel.  You can sign up for $66 and enjoy one of the rides. 
AND you can collect pledges from your friends and family to support this ride.  If you don’t ride you can sponsor a rider.  If you don’t know a rider to sponsor you can sponsor me.  The routes we have selected are very scenic and beautiful.  More information is on our blog (care66.blogspot.com).  We will begin at the Courthouse Square in downtown Gallup and will parade around the Courthouse to begin our rides.  Yes there will be kids program at the Courthouse Square.
If you don’t think you can ride the entirety of your chosen course you can do it as a team (you will need to arrange transportation and pick up yourself).
CARE 66 is looking for affordable office space in the downtown area since there is not enough room at the Lexington for our admin staff.  Please call or email me if you have any ideas or leads.
Until next month stay well and do good!
