Tour of the Gila

The Gila are enchanting & remote mountains in southwest New Mexico that each May host the annual Tour of the Gila Road Race. It is apparent why this area is becoming a draw to both road and mountain cyclists. The area’s roads afford smooth pavement, minimal traffic and offers climbing that jumps back and forth across the continental divide. The Gila Bike Tour’s quiet roads are the real draw to this area, they climb, dive, twist and turn from start to finish. This tour rides through cool Ponderosa Pine forests, climbs between wilderness areas, and passes through the White Mountains, home of the La Lobo, the Mexican Grey Wolf. The quiet roads generally allow cyclists to ride two abreast so they can talk-away the miles.
