Fourteen riders turned out for lunch today at Cafe Fina near Santa Fe. A bunch of us met at Tramway and Central and rode up through Madrid and Galisteo to the restaurant in lovely riding weather. Cafe Fina serves excellent food and has a very nice outdoor pavilion area that they set aside for us.

After an excellent lunch, we all headed back in various directions. New members Heidi and Cornbread attempted a ride up to the Santa Fe Ski Area but were deterred by inclement weather. Larry, Daniel, Jeff, Amy and I rode up to Jacks Creek Campground in the Pecos Mountains, a Riding Challenge / Butler Map Gold Road. We rode through just enough rain to get us to put on our rain gear but made it to our destinations under reasonably good conditions.

I realize it is frustrating to have our riding plans thwarted and it can be unpleasant to ride motorcycles around in the rain but given how much we need the moisture:
YAY RAIN!!!

Overall, it was a great day to be out.

Cafe Fina, 624 Old Las Vegas Highway, Santa Fe.

Meet at the restaurant at noon. If you would like to ride up with a group meet at the Smith's parking lot at Tramway and Central (200 Tramway Blvd SE, Albuquerque, NM.) at 10:15 am for a prompt 10:30 departure.

Here is a map of the recommended route to the restaurant:

After lunch some folks may choose to ride one of two nearby Riding Challenge / Butler Map Gold Roads. The first option is to ride up to Jack's Creek Campground in the Pecos and the second is to go up to Ski Santa Fe. The choice will be influenced by the status of the roads. As of June 28 the road to Jack's Creek is closed north of Cowles due to fire danger. The road up to Ski Santa Fe is open to the ski area parking lot. Cross your fingers for rain!
