Happy Earth Day Cruise @ Railyard Park
Apr 21 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 am

Join us on this mellow community bicycle ride visiting trails along the Santa Fe River and Acequia Madre.  We will take a look at and learn about some of the storm-water mitigation work and “rain gardens” that the City and partners have developed along these two waterways.  We will finish up by passing through the new Acequia Trail underpass to arrive at Earth Day events at the Railyard Park.

Magical History Cruise @ Meet at Railyard Park Community Room
May 12 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Last chance to ride the Bruns General Hospital Rail Triangle!

Climb on board the “Magical History Cruise,” a “GUSTO” study ride kicking off “Bike-to-Work Week” by visiting little-known historic railroads in our area.   SFCT’s Trails Program Manager will serve as your bicycle-mounted guide and historic interpreter along abandoned rail beds, trails, roads, and other more faint traces of railways of yore.

The highlight of this mellow community bicycle ride will be a visit to the soon-to-vanish Bruns General Hospital rail triangle, alongside the Rail Trail on land that is scheduled to be developed for new housing later this year.

Some of you may remember this as the winding course of the “Rail Trail” before it was built as a paved.  With the express permission of the developers, you can learn of planned trail connections to new residential roadways that will replace, and possibly even enhance, the informal trail connections that we can still enjoy just for another season or so.

AT&SF, Original alignment – original trestle

We will also visit vanishing traces of the New Mexico Central Railroad and some abandoned sections of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe that hold promise as future trail alignments.
