Gila Super Tour 2017

Saturday - Sunday, May 13-14, 2017

Join us on Saturday, May 13th , in Silver City, NM, for the New Mexico Touring Society’s 26th annual super tour of the Gila Inner Loop. The two-day ride accommodates all riders and bikes. Upon leaving Silver City riders will climb to Pinos Altos then pedal through scenic evergreens in the Gila National Forest. The ride crosses the continental divide twice, and altitudes vary from 5,800 feet to 7,500 feet. There are some moderate to steep ascents and descents. The first day ride concludes at Camp Thunderbird. The registration fee covers lodging at Camp Thunderbird, an arrival snack, dinner, and breakfast before departing the Camp for Silver City the next morning. The ride along the Mimbres River valley is a great way to start the day. The ride starts and ends at the Silver City Walmart parking lot. Most riders finish the ride around noontime Sunday. Riders may leave cars at the Walmart parking lot. The NMTS provides SAG support and two SAG stops with refreshments.
