For many the fall season is the best time of year for both mountain and road cyclists. The days become more mild and of course the Aspen start changing color by late September or early October. This combination makes for wonderful cycling of any type.

Road riders will want to take advantage of any higher terrain rides while the riding lasts. This includes the climbs to Taos Ski Valley and U.S. Hill. Not only are these both good climbs, but the views are tremendous. Longer rides like the Enchanted Circle or Mora Loop are also good this time of year as mid day temperatures have cooled down. Eventually fall will give way to winter and the rides get shorter and climbs become difficult as sweaty ascents make for chilling descents. But the town loops are great and if you have a cross bike it will open up a whole new world of discovery in the Taos area.

Mountain bikers will ride as much high terrain as possible, like The South Boundary Trail, Northside at Taos Ski Valley, and the Woodpile Trail. As these rides offer the best viewing and riding. Bring dry clothes for fast descents after a long sweaty climb. The first snowfall marks the end of high terrain mountain biking, but not necessarily all mountain biking. Rides along the Rio Grande Gorge sometimes last well into winter and dry soon after storms, making them accessible almost year round, these include Horse Thief Trail, West Rim Trail, and The Rift Valley Trail.

All riders must be prepared for changing weather conditions, which means snow and temperature drops as the shorter days move in.
