The Sandia Crest Road is a scenic and challenging ride on the east side of the Sandia Mountains. The ride takes bikers to the highest point of the Sandia Mountains, meaning there is a significant amount of elevation gain on the ride up followed by a fast and fun descent. The Sandia Crest Road bike ride tops out at 10,640 feet. This challenging but scenic climb to the highest point of the Sandia Mountains. The starting point for this ride offers riders over 4,000 feet of elevation gain, so get ready to work those thighs out. The descent is the highlight of the ride, and the scenery on the way down is not to be missed.
