New Mexico Cyclists for Wildfire Relief
The Hermit’s Peak / Calf Canyon Fire is heartbreaking. The size and scope of this tragedy are unprecedented. Our neighbors are suffering. New Mexico’s robust cycling community has come together to help!
In response to the largest wildfire in our state’s history, a group of concerned cyclists created New Mexico Cyclists for Wildfire Relief. Together, they are raising awareness and donating to the Santa Fe Community Foundation’s Community Resiliency Fund. 100% of the donations raised will go directly to our funding region of San Miguel and Mora Counties. Grants will support food and water distribution, emergency shelter, cash assistance, and other critical services.
Join our state’s cyclist community by giving to the Fund today.
FoCo Fondo Expands Non-Binary Initiatives for 2022
FoCo Fondo, born from a place of expanding routes and adventures since 2015, has continued to expand its initiatives to ensure that all athletes feel welcome to pick up a gravel bike and push their limits. One area, with the support of the community, is with its non-binary initatives. FoCo Fondo believes that bikes, no matter consuming them for fun, competition, or travel are for everyone.
2022 sees an expansion for non-binary initatives. 2021 was the first year FoCo Fondo offered a non-binary category to create a space for riders who don’t easily fit into the historical men’s and women’s category. 2022 sees an added matched prize purse of $3000 from Fat Tire for the non-binary category for the 145-mile Triple Dog Dare you route. This brings the total prize purse to $9000 across the men’s, women’s, and non-binary category and split between Top 5 riders in each category.
In addition, FoCo Fondo offered a Non-Binary Entry Program for 2022 complete with housing from Fat Tire. This program partnered with non-profit Stamina Racing Collective and local athlete Bethel Steele to create a welcoming space for these athletes to come to FoCo Fondo, engage with other non-binary athletes and the broader cycling community. “I can only speak to my own experience navigating the sport as a woman to a professional level, but I couldn’t get to where I am today without support for housing and entries through the years. And although no program is perfect, this is a nod to these athletes to let them know that we see them and want them to be able to compete in cycling,” says Whitney Allison, one of FoCo Fondo’s two event coordinators.
