We suggest that you arrive at least one day prior to the start of your 4-day New Mexico bike tour, which will enable you to adjust to the time zone and minimize the risk of missing the trip start due to flight-related delays. We recommend that you fly into the Albuquerque International Sunport (ABQ) or the Santa Fe Municipal Airport (SAF).
For those flying into Albuquerque, we recommend booking a seat on the Sandia Shuttle Express (www.sandiashuttle.com) for transportation from the Sunport (ABQ) to Santa Fe. This option is available for $33 (each way), and you may request to be dropped off at the Inn on the Alameda (or another Santa Fe hotel, depending on where you booked your pre-night stay).
If you plan to drive your own vehicle to the trip start and need a place to park it for the week, the St. Francis Cathedral Basilica Parking Lot, located about a half a block from the first night's hotel, is the only walkable option. The cost is $40-60/day (depending on demand). Call 505-995-8689 to discuss the daily rates for the dates you will need parking. Alternatively, a more affordable option is the Santa Fe Airport for $3/day. However, the airport is 18 miles from the pickup/drop-off hotel and you are responsible for your own transportation to drop off and pickup your vehicle.
Your Trek Travel guides will meet you at Inn on the Alameda (303 E Alameda St, Santa Fe, NM 87501) at 11:30 AM on the first day of your 4-day New Mexico bike tour. After meeting at the hotel, you'll enjoy a fresh, delicious lunch at a downtown park and, after a brief orientation and safety talk, saddle up to begin the day's ride through the historic town of Santa Fe.
If you will be late for the pick-up or are going to miss it altogether, please inform your guides. You will receive an email a week before the trip start with their names and contact details. If you cannot reach them, please call our first hotel, Inn on the Alameda (888 984 2121), and leave a message with your expected arrival time and contact details.
