Did you know that Albuquerque offers over 400 miles of on-street bicycle facilities & multi-use trails? With dozens of convenient & diverse bicycle trails that crisscross the entire city, whatever your biking style our city has a trail to suit you. Many of our major bike paths are multiple use trails, which are paved & completely closed off to motor vehicles; these trails are perfect for taking your time & enjoying all the beautiful Albuquerque scenery. If your goal is to get from point A to point B & you don’t mind sharing the road with other vehicles, the city’s bicycle lanes & bicycle routes are a great option for you; these are routes with either designated bike lanes or linking streets where bikes & vehicles share the road. For those of you with a desire for adventure, grab a mountain bike & hit the Foothills Open Space mountain bike trails. No matter what your fitness level or bicycling proficiency our beautiful city offers a trail that will fit your needs.
If you aren’t travelling with your own bike don’t worry, there are a number of bike rental locations. The most convenient location for bicycle rentals to the B&B is Routes Rentals & Tours. Located on Mountain Road between 11th & 12th, Routes is only about half a mile & a 10 minute walk away from us. Routes rentals include city bikes & mountain bikes at hourly, half-day, & full-day rates; & bike reservations can be made online any time.
Pedal your way through historic neighborhoods around the B&B, visit museums & avoid the parking crunch in historic Old Town, feel the wind beneath Cottonwood trees along the Rio Grande River Bike Path, enjoy a picnic at the nearby biological park, zoo, or in one of the area’s many parks – the breathtaking New Mexico sky is the limit! As summer begins to wind down & with fall right around the corner, this is the ideal time of year to get outside & enjoy our city’s bike trails. Remember to stay hydrated in our gorgeous New Mexican desert & enjoy the trails!
