We welcome cyclists of all abilities and experience to enjoy the inaugural Lobo Cancer Challenge as part of a team, as a family, or as an individual. The 25-mile ride runs along Albuquerque’s Bosque Trail; the 50-mile and 100-mile rides will challenge riders throughout the East Mountains. All rides offer scenic, serene views.
This ride will offer cyclists an opportunity to enjoy some of the best views in the valley. The Bosque Trail winds along the Rio Grande river. Riders can expect flat, tree lined terrain. Two rest stops will be provided to support riders.
The ride will take cyclists east out of town and up old route 66 toward Sandia Crest. Around mile 9 you will begin your climb into the East Mountains. There, rolling roads with juniper and pinon will greet riders and provide views of the magnificent open space.
Initially following the same path as the 50 mile route, this route will challenge the experienced cyclist. Offering views of the valley and Sandia Mountain from rolling hills, the ride balances plenty of climbing in the first 70 miles with a generous downhill that brings you back into Albuquerque. Once back within city limits, flat roads lead to the finish at University Stadium.
