A mild winter has brought an early spring season the Taos area. This is great for mountain bikers looking to get in some gorge rides sooner than usual. It has also made road riding good in the high country, as the descents aren't too frigid. Spring is also a rough time for area cyclists. Mountain bikers need to keep an eye on the weather as seasonal storms make riding too muddy. Road riders will have to contend with afternoon winds that can gust up to 50mph. Come prepared for constantly changing weather conditions and the riding is only going to get better as we transition into the summer months.

Mountain biking starts along the Rio Grande gorge. This includes the West Rim Trail, The Rift Valley Trail, and Horse Thief Trail. These rides are beginner to intermediate with great views into the gorge. The riding then progresses to the foothills. This includes The Talpa Traverse, Devisadero Loop, and Trail 18. These rides are more alpine and range from beginner to expert. As we get into mid May riders will begin to venture up the South Boundary Trail or the Ojitios Trail. Now we're talking more sustained climbing and higher elevation. Ideally, the higher elevation rides won't be rideable until late May or early June. If riders are accessing this terrain earlier, we are probably looking at forest closure due to fire danger. These rides include the South Boundary Trail, the Woodpile Trail, and Northside at TSV. These rides range from intermediate to expert and are the reason you got that long travel full suspension bike in the first place. The fun factor goes way up now. Gravity riders can look for lift assist riding at Angel Fire Resort which has become the southwest's premier mountain bike park, and the new flow trails at Taos Ski Valley. Go to MTB Rides for details on these and other local rides. Come into the shop for maps of our local rides as well. Contact us for the most current trail conditions.

Road riding is underrated in Taos, but that is changing. Everyone knows about the Enchanted Circle and with events like the Taos Gran Fondo and Rough Riders 200 more roadies are seeing what the area has to offer. Local rides like the Hondo-Seco Loop, climb to Taos Ski Valley, and 518 to Sipapu and beyond are legendary. This includes the Mora Loop, the Circle's longer and meaner big brother. Riders can venture out to Tres Piedras and ride highway 64 into and through the Brazos area. It's so beautiful you'll think you're riding in a movie set. Hopewell Lake is a 40 out and back and the Brazo's Overlook is 58 miles round trip. We're now throwing the Ojo-High Road 125 into the mix. This century and a quarter goes from O'Keeffe Country, to the Rio Grande, to the famous High Road to Taos. Scenic and challenging are just the tips of this iceberg of a ride. Choose your route and time wisely to avoid heavy traffic. Go Road Rides for details on the most popular road rides.
