Greetings Enchanted Riders,

A friend & I will be visiting Taos this week and are thinking a dose or 2 of trail riding will help keep things fresh. We're a couple of mid-50s, relatively fit roadies who also mtb. This will be the 1st riding since Thanksgiving or so. 3-4hr, not too techy rides would be great; hills OK. Its more about enjoying being in the SW.

I'm assuming Santa Fe would be the nearest dry-enough-to-ride-&-not-wreck trails. We'd travel further if needed or recommended. Probably won't be riding until Friday or so - weather looks like it should be conducive to drying things out. Reviewing the "Santa Fe Rideable?" thead there are several areas listed by shortish handles for which a bit more detail would be great. TIA

Any insider info on shops/good rentals also apprecieated.

For rentals go to Mello Velo, Dave Bell offers up some nice rentals http://www.mellowvelo.com/. In The 'Fe city limits =La Tierra,Dale Balls and for the adventurous do both and add sidewinder. Plenty of good road riding too, Think Taos old hwy, Santa Fe to Bernallilo via Jemez springs loop and take the train back and many more.

Road riding around Taos is awesome as well. If you park at Gorge Bridge, you can do a nice big loop out through Carson to Tres Piedras and back to the gorge. Beautiful ride and if you see 10 cars I would be surprised.

Many Thanks All

Ended up visiting Mellow Velo for bikes & riding Dale Ball. It was super fun - 1st time riding anyplace outside New England. The weather was cool to start, roasty in the middle and spit snow on us by the end!
