The country around Taos, Santa Fe, and Albuquerque truly is the Land of Enchantment, not only for the area's Spanish influence and surreal landscape, but also because it's home to some of the best mountain biking in the southwest. Technical challenges, rugged terrain, and fast descents are found on the old mining roads, jeep trails, and singletrack that crisscross the pinyon- and juniper-dotted landscape of the Rio Grande Valley or the spruce forests of the Sangre de Cristo and Sandia Mountains. You'll get the inside track on everything from the best time of year to ride, to local events and attractions, and even where to get a cold drink and a burger after a hard day in the saddle.
