The Durango ~ Farmington Bicycle Tour offers three tours:
- 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 Cundiff Park where you will pick up your number plate which will have a sensor to let us know who started the tour and if you finished the tour. Take a lap on the BMX Track if you like but once you leave the park you will follow the Animas River Trail out of town. The ride then turns off onto La Posta Road where you will follow the river downstream 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 Loves Only" portion of the ride. This Tour Includes an event T-Shirt, Custom # Plate, 4 Aid Stations along the way, Lunch, Beverage Ticket, Event Patch, & it's going be a Poker Run also. You will pick up 7 cards along the way and get to play 5 of them for prizes at San Juan College.
The Dirt Tour
The "Dirt Lovers Only" tour begins at New Mexico CR 2300, where you enter the "Aztec Jungle" where you will be traveling "Gas Field" roads 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. This Tour Includes Event T-Shirt, Custom # Plate, 3 Aid Stations along the way, Lunch, Beverage Ticket, Event Patch, & it's going to be a Poker Run also. You will pick up 5 cards along the way and get to play them for prizes at San Juan College.
The Tiny Tour
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 are so close to being done, this is a common spot 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. This Tour Includes Event T-Shirt, Custom # Plate, Beverage Ticket, Event Patch.
