About This Activity

Our 9th annual Tour de Ruidoso is offering some exciting changes this year!  This event will still be packed with a challenge, but will start and finish at the beautiful Spencer Theater.  All event options will have the same starting time, and take the same route as prior years, minus the difficult Swiss Chalet hill.

After Nogal Rest Station, you’ll drop out of the evergreen forest into the Sonoran Desert and wind your way to Capitan, New Mexico. The Century riders climb to the Capitan Gap where Smokey Bear was found. From Capitan you continue east and then south to Ft. Stanton. Here you’ll begin the climb to the mesa and the Sierra Blanca Regional Airport. Open country and magnificent views will enchant you as you head back to the beautiful Spencer Theater where we will treat you to a wonderful afternoon of food, drink, and music.

The beautiful scenery will amaze you as you tour through history. Geronimo’s Apaches roamed these hills. Black Jack Pershing and the Buffalo Soldiers served at Ft. Stanton. This is the heart of Billy the Kid country. The Lincoln County War was fought in this area and you may still see a stagecoach crossing the mountains near you where Smokey Bear was born and buried.
