Routes Rentals & Tours:

Routes Rentals & Tours in Albuquerque offers visitors and locals a chance to see the town in one of the best ways possible: from the seat of a bike. Rent a bike and get into the heart of any Albuquerque neighborhood.

Whether you're an active recreation enthusiast or a tourist who enjoys visiting a city with a zoomed in view, this business offers everything that's needed. You'll find the bike itself, the route planning that will get you there, and everything else you need to enjoy your pedal powered trip.

Albuquerque offers plenty of room to stretch your wheels and pedal. With over 180 square miles of diverse geography and more than 400 miles of bike paths and trails, seeing the city on bike is an accessible and healthy option. With the sunny, warm weather the city offers, biking has always been popular with enthusiasts. Now it is possible for visitors and local tourists alike.

The business has done the research for you, and offers route maps to some of the city's more popular destinations, with distances equated in bicycle time. Getting from the shop to downtown takes about 15 minutes, or to the Sandia foothills, about 90 minutes.
