More Information

Rider Level: 3 - Active?

AVERAGE DAILY MILEAGE:
61 kilometers / 38 miles
TOTAL MILES:
304 kilometers / 189 miles
AVERAGE DAILY ELEVATION:
855 meters / 2,806 feet
TOTAL ELEVATION:
4,276 meters / 14,030 feet
TERRAIN: UNDULATING
The terrain in Northern New Mexico is hilly to mountainous, and the rides feature an average of about 50-75 feet (15-22 meters) of elevation gain per mile. Of course, shuttles are always available when you've had enough and our shuttle points are designed to facilitate skipping the rougher or more heavily trafficked sections of the routes. Keep in mind that the elevation above sea level here is between 5,500 and 7,000 feet (1,675 to 2,130 meters). This elevation tends to add a degree of difficulty to the terrain. Please also note that many of the roads in this region have a "chip seal" surface, which is a type of pavement treatment that is more rough than typical asphalt. Our New Mexico trip is best suited for our Type 3 Riders. Those who wish to ride every mile but are concerned about their physical ability may want to try our electric bike option–you still get a workout but can climb alongside even the strongest rider. Type 4 Riders will enjoy the extra mileage the avid route options offer.
NON-RIDING ACTIVITIES:
On most Trek Travel trips, we offer non-riding options for riders who want to take the afternoon off, or travel companions who want to spend little or no time in the saddle. Some of these options may need to be scheduled before your trip–please contact one of our Trip Consultants for more information. Expenses and/or related transportation to these activities may not be included in the trip price. Some non-riding options on this trip are:
  • Saddle up for a horseback ride at Bishop's Lodge
  • Explore Georgia O'Keefe's permanent art collection in downtown Santa Fe
  • Shop the boutiques along the historic Santa Fe Plaza
  • Learn more about the history and culture of Santa Fe through intimate walking tours
  • Indulge yourself with spa treatments at the hotel
  • Take in the sweeping views of New Mexico's unique landscape on a hot air balloon ride
  • Hike miles of trails through the Sangre de Cristo Mountains

See itinerary for specific daily ride distances and elevation options. On all of our vacations, Trek Travel seeks to find quiet, paved secondary roads or bike paths to experience a region; busy roads are avoided as much as possible. Our itineraries are an approximation of our trips. Trek Travel strives to offer every guest a vacation of a lifetime on every trip. At times routes, hotels, activities, etc. listed here may change at the discretion of the trip designer or guides to improve the trip experience.

Averages and totals are calculated from our "Today’s Ride" options.

Arriving

We suggest that you arrive at least one day prior to the trip start, 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). SAF is a small regional airport with limited flights options, therefore guests tend to have more success flying through ABQ.

If you plan to drive your own vehicle to the trip start and need a place to park it for the week, you may park at Bishops Lodge. Self-Parking during your stay is complementary.

Your Trek Travel guides will meet you at Bishop’s Lodge (1297 Bishops Lodge Road Santa Fe, New Mexico 87506) at 11:00 AM on the first day of the trip. After meeting at the hotel you'll enjoy a fresh, delicious lunch and, after a brief orientation and safety talk, saddle up to begin the day's ride through the historic town of Santa Fe. Please come prepared to ride, dressed in your cycling clothes, and have your shoes and any riding gear easily accessible, separate from your luggage.

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 your first hotel, Bishop’s Lodge (505-983-6377) and leave a message with your expected arrival time and contact details. A taxi from Albuquerque International Airport to your ride start or first hotel will take about one hour and cost around $120-165 one way.

Leaving

We will say our farewells at the hotel at 11:00 AM in Santa Fe. From here you may choose to stay for more time in town or return to the Albuquerque Sunport via Groome Shuttle or another transportation method of your choosing.

Before and After Your Trip

before

Before & After: Santa Fe, New Mexico

There are few places in North America quite like Santa Fe. It's a town of vibrant culture, color and texture, and offers a world class experience for any traveler. Santa Fe is the oldest Capital city in the US with buildings dating back to the late 1500's and a founding date of 1610 by the Spanish. Steeped in Native American, Spanish and Mexican History, Santa Fe has a unique character of earthen Adobe architecture that forms the organic grid of its charming streets. Many would say one night is not enough in Santa Fe as there is simply so much to see and do. It is regarded as the third largest art market in the US, as well as one of the culinary meccas of North America, and is truly the cultural capital of the Southwest. We recommend the following accommodations for your pre- and post-trip hotel:
