Best Motorcycle Rides in Albuquerque

To enjoy the best of landscapes in Albuquerque and surrounding areas, here are our top four favorite motorcycle routes:

Sandia Crest Scenic Byway

For the best views of Albuquerque and the Rio Grande Valley, cruise along the Sandia Crest Scenic Byway, which takes you through endless twists and turns high in elevation (over 10,000 ft!), allowing you to enjoy panoramic views of the sand and the mountains. If you plan to start in Albuquerque and return there, this round trip would be roughly 50 miles.

Turquoise Trail National Scenic Byway

The ~ 50-mile Turquoise Trail National Scenic Byway takes you from Albuquerque to Santa Fe along the Turquoise Trail. Start on Interstate 40 and NM Highway 14 and head down this trail, enjoying breathtaking views of Sandy Mountain and the Sandia Pueblo with its traditional Adobe homes. Along the way, you will pass several charming towns like Tijeres and Madrid, a former coal mining community.

Jemez Mountain Trail

Start in Northwest Albuquerque and ride parallel through the Jemez Mountains, enjoying sprawling desert vistas and lush greenery rich with aspen trees. Don't forget to catch Jemez Falls and stop at the Jemez State Monument, where you can learn more about Native American heritage through many of the archaeological relics on offer. Need to rest? Stop at Jemez Springs and Los Alamos and kick back a cold one.

From sprawling nature preserves to historic sites, Albuquerque has no shortage of exciting places to visit. Our favorite attractions include the Charming streets of Old Town, Petroglyph National Monument, the Albuquerque Biological Park, and Route 66 - America's " mother road."

Best Times of Year to Rent a Motorcycle in Albuquerque

We highly recommend renting a motorcycle in Albuquerque during the Spring and Fall thanks to their mild temperatures averaging from the '60s to 70° F. Vibrant Autumn foliage creates a visually stunning landscape that the winter season cannot match. Do not forget that Albuquerque is a high-elevation city (~5,000 ft.) with cooler temperatures the higher you go, so dress appropriately.
