Bikepacking Roots is bringing back the Safetybird!


Are you attending the New Mexico Bikepacking Summit and looking for a shorter, more-beginner friendly ride than the full Dangerbird?

Join us!

October 21st to 22nd, 2023   │  Las Cruces, New Mexico

Bikepacking Roots’ Executive Director, Noelle Battle, will be joining experienced local ride leaders to guide folks on an awesome introductory tour of the Las Cruces area.

What to expect:

  • The route will consist of a 38-mile loop, with approximately 19 miles of riding each day.
  • Riders will encounter of mix of surfaces including dirt, singletrack and pavement.
  • Because of the singletrack section bikes with 2.2 tires or larger are recommended.
  • The only re-supply and water access along the route will be a stop for cold drinks & gelato around mile 12 on Day 1.

If you don’t have a full bikepacking set-up, some loaner gear may be available.

We will also be onsite during the Summit on October 20th to assist any riders in preparation.


*We plan to cap the group for this event at 25 riders so register soon if you want to join. Also, if your plans change after you have registered, please let us know so we can open up space for others.
