Magical History Cruise: Grand Opening of Bike Week, May 12

Santa Fe’s Bike Week started with a “Magical History Cruise” on Saturday, May 12, led by SFCT’s Trails Program Manager.  Other activities supported and attended by SFCT included the “Railyard Loop” Bike Fiesta on Friday, May 18, the MTB Poker Ride featuring the new “Dog Park Connector Trail” on the morning of Saturday, May 19, and the Santa Fe Century Registration/Packet Pick-Up and Vintage Bicycle Contest on the evening of May 19.  The latter event was another great chance to promote a recently-forged GUSTO connection, the SFCC-Spur Trail Connector, particularly since the Century featured a first-ever off-road option that utilized the Spur Trail and the Rail Trail.
