DAY TRIPS FROM ALBUQUERQUE

I am attending the Balloon Fiesta next month. I'm meeting other riders once I arrive. We would like to take day rides after we watch the balloon assend. Can anyone recommend some scenic rides?

Any advice on what to see and do at the Balloon Fiesta???????????????

Hey there. I'm in Las Cruces, but have lived in Albuquerque. Things worth seeing there are Old Town, lots of good stuff you could only get in NM, in terms of shops and stuff. The aquarium is good. For a nice day ride, go to Sandia Peak. It's a ski place in the winter. Should be some real nice biking roads there. You could go south to the wildlife preserve, but it's a straight highway shot. If you want about a 2 hr ride (one way) you could check out the very large array, the array of big telescopes you saw in the movie Contact. You can get to Santa Fe in 45 min, that is a terrific place to hang out in the plaza, see lots of art galleries, terrific restaurants, lots of historical stuff. You are an hour from Taos, great ski place, but also a great toursity village. Great roads in the area.

Will pm too, may not be back soon.
