Magical History Tour

May 20 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


Eventbrite - Magical History TourThis year’s edition of the “Magical History Tour,” a slow and easy bicycle ride through time and space, will focus on historic transportation alignments from the 20th Century, including the original “Mother Road” (pre-1937 Route 66) and the historic rail lines that began to disappear with its arrival, including the New Mexico Central Railroad, the Chili Line, and the not-so-active line to Lamy. Of course we would be remiss to leave out reference to Santa Fe’s three official” National Historic Trails” – El Camino Real, the Old Spanish Trail, and the Santa Fe Trail – which date to previous centuries.

We will “cruise” a little more than 10 miles, almost all on asphalt trails or roads. Given the importance of all of these historic alignments to local trail planning, this tour is also being offered as a “Study Ride” for GUSTO, the community-based planning effort to link all of our outlying trails into a “grand unified” system.
