Over the past 3 decades, Timberline Adventures has been running cycling and hiking tours all over Northern New Mexico. We have thoroughly enjoyed our explorations of the quirky towns of Taos, Santa Fe and Albuquerque, but from a cyclist point of view, there is so much more. In reaching beyond the usual routes we have traveled through Red River, the Enchanted Circle, Bandelier Monument, the mighty Southern San Juans, the Rio Grande Gorge, Ghost Ranch, the land of Georgia O’Keefe, Los Alamos and more.
We’ll again share our discoveries in this Land of Enchantment in the season ahead with a tour designed to embrace the best parts of these routes, pared down to fit into a week. We visit the artsy towns of Santa Fe and Taos – including the Taos Pueblo, which has been continuously inhabited for 40 generations* of Puebloan people. And we ride around the Enchanted Circle, amid the Southern San Juans, up to Los Alamos, and down to Albuquerque, with an itinerary full of enchantment and excitement.
*In Timberline’s 40th anniversary year, we are celebrating all things 40!
