Wonderful Experience - A wonderful tour with Van, a third generation resident who was very knowledgeable about both the history and contemporary culture of Albuquerque. He was attentive and shared the story of Albuquerque as well as some of the highlights of the city landscape with great enthusiasm. In addition, we ended up being the only people who signed up for the tour and they didn’t cancel and Routes, the tour company, had good bikes and equipment.

Exceeded expectations - This was a wonderful experience! I only had 24 hours in Albuquerque so decided to be take this bicycle tour. Heidi was my guide. She was informative, positive and entertaining. I learned much more about the city, the culture and the geography in 2 1/2 hours than I would have if I would’ve spent a week there alone. Heidi also provided great recommendations for lunch and some shopping needs. She did not steer me wrong! I will be back soon to do the snowshoe trip or the bicycle balloon festival tour. This is a high-quality operation. Bernie

Ride in ABQ - Had so much fun on this tour with Heidi. She was fun and informative. You see things you don’t normally see and gives you a different perspective of the area/town. It’s an easy mostly flat ride and would totally recommend it.
