RIDE: Buffalo Pass | MILES: 100 | LOCATION: Chinle, AZ
Buffalo Pass is 100 mile point-to-point from the Great Basin Desert town of Chilne, Arizona to Buffalo Pass, high in the Chuska Mountains. Travelling through some of the American Southwest’s most spectacular geography and colorful geology to a dinner of mutton stew and Navajo tacos at the Thunderbird Lodge, Buffalo Pass is an epic journey from low deserts to high pinion and juniper pine forests.

RIDE: Sangre de Christo | MILES: 118 | LOCATION: Angel Fire, NM

Dirt roads, 13,000 foot peaks, watersheds, rios, plateaus, ranches, lakes, tamales, centuries old flour mills, ancient churches, coyotes, raspberries and near nonexistent traffic on narrow roads that, in certain spots, literally wind around trees, make this ride a true southwest epic.
RIDE: Phantom Canyon | MILES: 125 | LOCATION: Colorado Springs, CO
