Overview


The country around Taos, Santa Fe, and Albuquerque truly is the Land of Enchantment, not only for the area's Spanish influence and surreal landscape, but also because it's home to some of the best mountain biking in the southwest. Technical challenges, rugged terrain, and fast descents are found on the old mining roads, jeep trails, and singletrack that crisscross the pinyon- and juniper-dotted landscape of the Rio Grande Valley or the spruce forests of the Sangre de Cristo and Sandia Mountains.
From the sinuous curves of the South Boundary Trail to the switchbacks of Glorieta Baldy and the arroyos of Otero Canyon, veteran mountain biker Bob D'Antonio outlines forty-five of the best rides from Red River to Tijeras. You'll get the inside track on everything from the best time of year to ride, to local events and attractions, and even where to get a cold drink and a burger after a hard day in the saddle. Insider tidbits about each ride make this more than just a trail guide. Also included: comprehensive ride descriptions; detailed maps; elevation profiles; ratings for physical and technical difficulty; tips on riding and trip preparation.
Wherever you ride and whatever your skill level, let Mountain Biking Northern New Mexico be your guide to this mountain biking paradise.
