The best places to bicycle in New Mexico are hard to nail down, because there are so many. Cycling enthusiasts, racers, fitness fanatics, and casual riders have something great, pedaling in the Land of Enchantment.

If you’re in Albuquerque, enjoy the 506+ miles of bike lanes, trails, and routes. You can even get the map on a bandana. For dirt, you don’t even have to leave town, with the highest percentage of parkland and Open Spaces per person, within city limits. If you’re into BMX, you’re in luck. Duke City BMX boasts the world’s largest covered track.

You like dirt? Good. Check out Santa Fe, Los Alamos, Los Lunas, Las Cruces, Socorro, Ruidoso, Hobbs, Farmington, Taos, and Alamogordo. It’s a mountain biking paradise of wilderness and awesome trails in the Land of Enchantment. There is everything from mountains, to forests, to open mesa, to the weird. New Mexico has some bizarre sand. Venture out to the popular White Mesa trails, or head south, for the bi-annual and always sold-out Full Moon Bike Ride, at White Sands. There are so many cool places in NM, just scroll down. You’ll find plenty to do.

Oh! Also, watch out for goatheads. They’ll pop your tubes. Seriously. It’s a thing. Tube sealant, tire liners, thorn resistant tubes, and resistant tires are all options. At least one is necessary here, for a flat free ride. Seriously.
