Tour de Bosque

The record-breaking temperatures as of late have been absolutely brutal, so a 50-mile bike ride in the blazing-hot sun might sound frightening. What if that bike ride was a fundraiser for an organization that fights one of the top killers in the world? Suddenly that heat doesn't seem so lethal anymore. Take a stand on two wheels today as New Mexico AIDS Services hosts its annual Tour de Bosque. Choose either a 25-mile ($35) or a 50-mile ($45) bike ride traversing the heart of Albuquerque. The long ride starts at the Fourth Street Mall Downtown at 7 a.m., with the short ride kicking off an hour later. Registration packets can be had the day before from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 625 Truman NE. For more information or to register online, visit tourdebosque.com.
