LO ABQ| Rio Grande River Float

Event Description:

Join LO and Quiet Waters Paddling Adventure on a float down the Rio Grande on Sunday, July 25th. A light lunch will be provided. We will have 8 hard kayaks and 12 stand up paddle boards with kayak backing.

Where: Corrales Siphon Access Rd, Rio Rancho. Coordinates: 35° 17.160'N 106° 36.043'W we will meet here and take a shuttle to the Algodones drop off. Mask will be required when riding in the shuttle.

Time: 10:30am for check-in. Shuttles will leave at 10:45 please make sure to be on time. We will arrive back at Siphon Access Rd at roughly 3:00pm.

Footwear – The most common injuries during river activities are foot injuries, so protect your feet with secure footwear. Sharp rocks and occasional broken glass are potential hazards both along the riverbanks and the riverbed itself. As there's plenty of mud along the Rio Grande's riverbanks, choose footwear that can be thoroughly cleaned or hosed off following your trip. Water shoes, strap-on river sandals or old sneakers are all good choices. Bare feet and flip-flops are not acceptable.

Clothing - Avoid cotton, especially early and late in the season! Layer clothing, using quick-drying synthetics such as polyester, lycra, nylon, neoprene or wool. All of these materials dry fairly quickly and most importantly, continue to provide insulation when wet.

Sun Protection – sunglasses are encouraged and sunscreen is very important. We will provide sunscreen if needed.
