Where To Bike

New Mexico has lots of great places to bike. With nearly year-round sunshine and and various mile-high altitudes, New Mexico is great for training or living. With more bike facilities being built every year , the 506 miles of bicycle facilities in Albuquerque are one of the reasons that Albuquerque is considered such a bicycle friendly city. Santa Fe also ranks highly for trails and facilities. Off-road trails have some of the most beautiful biking one can ride, from White Mesa to White Sands.

For commuting or recreation, NM has a lot to offer. That’s not all! NM also has a great Fixie scene and world-class BMX. In fact, it sports the largest covered BMX track in the world at Duke City BMX! How do you like them apples Portland? Just kidding…or are we?

Whatever your bike of choice, we have somewhere cool for you to go. Try Google Maps Bicycling section to find great routes or use one of several maps provided by municipal governments, companies and non-profits.
