New Mexico Self-Guided Bike Tour

Santa Fe: The City Different

Discover why there is a good reason Northern New Mexico is called the "The Land of Enchantment." For millennia, people have gravitated to the Rio Grande Rift Valley and the flanking Sangre de Cristo and Jemez mountains. The heritage they left behind is still thriving in the culture, cuisine, and landscape you will experience along our routes. Santa Fe is truly the epicenter of the American Southwest, and as you explore the 400 year-old streets you will encounter what makes the town unlike any other. Ride, relax, and experience the enchanting land of New Mexico on this self-guided cycling vacation of a lifetime. Book your trip with confidence »

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, elevation, 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.

For those flying into Albuquerque, we recommend booking a seat on the Groome Shuttle (www.groometransportation.com) for transportation from the Sunport (ABQ) to Santa Fe. This option is available for $37.85 (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, parking is available at the Inn on the Alameda. Simply provide them with your vehicle details at check-in.

Your Trek Travel host will meet you at the Inn on the Alameda hotel at 11:30 AM on the first day of the trip and together you will walk to a local eatery for lunch and discuss the week ahead. Please have your cycling clothes, shoes, and any riding gear easily accessible, separate from your luggage. After lunch, you will be given you a brief orientation, safety talk, and bike fitting before you head out on today's ride.

If you will be late for the meeting time or are going to miss it altogether, please inform your Trek Travel contact. You will receive an email a week before the trip start with their name and contact details. If you cannot reach them, please call the hotel, Inn on the Alameda (888-984-2121), and leave a message with your expected arrival time and contact details.

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 1500s 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 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 indeed the cultural capital of the Southwest. We recommend the following accommodations for your pre- and post-trip hotel.
