Durango to Farmington Bicycle Tour
Group Ride Details:

The route is 1/2 pavement and 1/2 dirt. You will get a chance to ride a BMX Track, Pedal the Pavement, Grind the Gravel, ride the Slickrock and Shred the Single-Track or even some Freeride Jumps.

Full Tour 50 miles

Dirt Tour 30 miles

Tiny Tour 16 miles

The "Full Tour" begins anywhere in Durango but you will need to exit through Santa Rita Park. Your number plate will have a sensor to let us know who started the tour and if you finished the tour. Once you leave the park the route follows the Animas River Trail out of town. You then turn off and begin following La Posta Road going south through the Animas Valley. The route then continues south on highway 550 into New Mexico. Once you reach the state line you are nearing the dirt portion of the tour.

The "Dirt Tour" begins at CR 2300, from here on out it is pretty much all dirt and single track until the finish. Ride a few miles off highway 550 on a dirt road until you reach the edge of the beautiful Kiffen Canyon, we recommend this spot for a lunch break. The road then drops to the bottom of the canyon you were overlooking and goes up the other side to connect with the Big Apple Trail (an extension of the Road Apple Trail). This is where the single track portion of the ride begins, pedal and pump your way down into the Farmington Glade Trail System.

The "Tiny Tour" begins once the route crosses N. Light Plant Rd. where riders experience 16 miles of smooth and fast flowing single-track. Once riders cross light plant road they have are so close to being done, this is a common place for riders to meet up with members who might be doing longer portions of the ride. There's no better way to bring in the tour than with your family or friends.

Once you arrive at San Juan College Bike Park, there will be a venue with ongoing activities taking place. Local vendors will be set up and leading out group rides at the park. (See venue itinerary)
