Guadalupe Rim Road ride - to Cloudcroft and back
« on: December 29, 2014, 06:27:31 PM »
This is from the fall of 2013 and 2014 but I just found this forum and wanted to share the information.

A couple of years ago a friend did a ride starting near Queen, New Mexico, riding to Cloudcroft and back. He rode the Guadalupe Rim up then the desert route on the return ride. I missed it and I?ve been wanting to do it ever since.

When it was time for this ride our group dwindled to two, my wife and I. We decided to do a 3 day ride so we could spend a day riding around Cloudcroft. From the start near Queen we rode 71 miles of continuous dirt until we hit the pavement just east of Pi?on.

Route up- I only mapped it to Weed as we had multiple options from there to Cloudcroft.

Intended desert route on the way back. http://www.motowhere.com/maps/route/Desert-Route-506

To save me from rebuilding the thread to post here the full report can be viewed here: http://www.twtex.com/forums/showthread.php?t=90392

I might try another week long trip south again this winter. Maybe do the Red Sands ride again?
