It bills itself as the “Oldest Bicycle Race in the Southwest,” and it’s returning for another go-round in 2011.
The Tour de Los Alamos is on tap for yet another spin around the county. It will be run on Father’s Day, the 38th consecutive year it has been held. It’s hosted by the Roadrunners Cycling Club.
Registration for the event is still open online for those wishing to participate.
The Tour features a challenging 27-mile loop, which starts near NM 501 near Los Alamos National Laboratory property, winds through the Back Gate, down to White Rock on NM 4, then back up the Truck Route.
The top men’s race category features three laps, a total of 81 miles, and approximately 6,000 total feet of climbing.
The race is part of the New Mexico Road Series and annually attracts some of the top competitors from around the state and more than a few top riders in the region.
In 2010, Rotem Ishai of Durango, Colo., took the top honors in the men’s pro 1/2/3 category, just nipping one of New Mexico’s top on- and off-road riders, Damian Calvert of Albuquerque.
