The 2021 tour season has officially kicked off with a four hour ride with Rachel Varn. Rachel, living in Maryland, is the founder of Pedal Power Kids, an organization formed to get more kids on bikes! Saturday’s tour, a 17 mile ride on the Alien Run trail system, including the Outer Limits, was certainly memorable. The Alien Run trail system gets its name because supposedly on March 25, 1948 a UFO crashed on this piece of high desert ground near Aztec, NM. The official site of the crash is marked by a plaque. The trail is made up of 3 separate loops, each one slightly more difficult. This includes the Outer limits, a 9 mile section made up of challenging terrain with ups and downs, twists and turns. Alien Run is a great ride for early and late season tours.
