TOUR OF THE RIO GRANDE VALLEY

TORGV was started by the Albuquerque Wheelmen in the 1970’s and ran for over 20 years. At its height, TORGV attracted thousands of riders and was the premier bicycle tour in New Mexico. BCNM was proud to bring back the ride in 2011 and is continuing the event in 2014.
 
TORGV 2014 takes riders on scenic flat roads through the Rio Grande Valley. The longer routes pass through Isleta, Los Lunas, Belen and return to Los Ranchos.
 
Money raised from TORGV 2014 will fund BCNM staff and its successful bicycle education, promotion, and advocacy programs.

 
Ride Date: Sunday, September 14th 2014
