ZiaVelo Cycling meets at Milgro Coffee y Espresso on University Avenue every Saturday for a no drop group ride. After Memorial Day meet time is 7:00 a.m. (depart 7:15) and in late September meet time is 8:00 a.m. and oll out around 8:15. Anyone is welcome to join the group ride which is typically a 40 mile out and back ride that averages between 18 and 19 mile per hour. There are 2 stops along the route for everyone to regroup and have a snack. The usual route heads west towards the Las Cruces Airport, where the first regroup is at the intersection of Frontage Rd. and Crawford Blvd. From there the route crosses over to Robert Larson Blvd. and heads west to the next bridge then crosses back over to Frontage Rd. and the second stop and regroup at Bowlins Old West Trading Post. Some riders will head back from there and some will ride out towards Corralitos Ranch or beyond for additional miles. On rare occasions the group will decide to take a different route and roll the South or North Valley to break from the usual route.

Other rides are on Sundays and Wednesdays after daylight savings time. Sunday rides meet every Sunday at Milagro Coffee at 8:00 am and are more challenging either by duration or intensity. Wednesday rides meet at Spotted Dog Brewery after daylight savings time to allow for sufficient daylight to complete the route. The route is just over an hour in duration and is a very challenging and high intensity race simulated ride.
