Kmart parking, KSU at 8:30am
Okay a bit of an update. After some consideration, I'm going to shorten the ride some, didn't realize it was going to 329 miles! Even my butt was starting to ache lol.
Ruidoso, Capitan, Lincoln, Ft, Stanton Ruidoso and Cloudcroft.
Leave Las Cruces to Tulie, gas up at the Shell station there and pick up another rider. On to Ruidoso, take the highway to Capitan, stop at the Shell station for a rest and or top off as need at the Apache Ski run road, continue to Capitan and have lunch at the Smokey Bear Cafe, ride into Lincoln and mess a round there for a bit. Then double back from Lincoln back through Ft Stanton and back into Ruidoso. This will cut the mileage back quite a bit.
Once we get to Ruidoso, we can stop at a predetermined place for a quick break and gas if anyone needs some. Then on to Cloudcroft and into Alamo. There is an Exxon station at the bottom of the mountain for gas for the trip home.
These are the temps being forecasted (as of 6/11) for Saturday. Las Cruces, 99, Alamogrodo, 98 and Ruidoso 85, 0% rain chance (so it says) as with any ride, just be prepared, water, rain gear, etc.
Looking forward to seeing some of you on the ride!
