  • Albuquerque - Bike Rental - Area Riding

    Later this week my wife and I are driving down to Albuquerque for the NCAA Indoor T&F Championships. After that we're going to explore before heading over to Tempe for an outdoor T&F meet at ASU the following weekend. I found there are a couple places in the Albuquerque and Phoenix areas that rent bikes.

    For those of you familiar with the area, if one were to rent a bike for a day or two, are there any particular places you'd suggest to ride and what to see? Since we don't have any set in stone plans it seemed if the weather was cooperative it might be fun to spend some time on two wheels.

    Thanks in advance for any insight.

    Edit: Additional notes. I wondered about exploring some Route 66 things. I'm also one that prefers back roads and 2-lane highways over interstate travel. I like to take my time and enjoy my surroundings.

    Don't know how feasible this is for you but tucson is about 90 minutes from Phoenix. MANY gorgeous rides out here. You see lots posted online about mount lemmon. Many riders list it in the top 5 rides in the country.

    Sonoita takes highway 83 which is gorgeous. Wine country in twisty mountain roads.

    There's also kit peak. Gorgeous mountain road designed by old school bikers.

      Thank you for that insight. I'll take a look into it. I've got Albuquerque one weekend and Phoenix area the next. So I'm just looking at what I might do in between them. So either city and it's area is in play.

      +1 on Mount Lemmon. Just bring a jacket, it gets cold at the top. If you don't have time for that, do South Mountain in Down town Phoenix. You get a unique view of the whole Valley from there.

    In NM, head north to any of the Pueblo’s like Santa Fe, Taos, Santa Clara, etc. Or west to Acoma. In Az take the back road 89A out of Sedona through Oak Creek Canyon to Flagstaff.

      The ride to Canyon Lake is a nice twisty ride, not too far from Tempe.
      Watch the drivers in the valley they are extreme IDIOTS!
      I hope you have a great time.

        When I was a kid we lived in Las Cruces for a couple of years and would go to Ruidoso and White Sands, had a lot of fun. I don't know how far from ABQ though.
