EXPERIENCE THE MAGIC OF THE HOLIDAYS ON OUR TWINKLE-LIGHT BICYCLE TOUR OF ALBUQUERQUE!
Join us as we take you through the heart of Albuquerque, down luminaria-lined avenues in Old Town and past some of the most impressive light displays in the Southwest. Our unique and intimate bike tours are the perfect way to experience the holiday sights, sounds, scents, and magic of New Mexico without the traditional headaches of heavy traffic and slow moving lines.
Now in our 8th Annual holiday season, Routes Bicycle Tours ‘Lights & Luminara’ Bike Tour has become a festive tradition for friends and families all over New Mexico!
Historic Old Town Albuquerque and the nearby Country Club neighborhood close their streets to automobile traffic on Christmas Eve, and together host one of the most extensive luminaria displays in the state. Old Town is also home to the City’s impressive holiday tree and the famous decorations and ceremonies of the San Felipe de Neri church.
Your breathtaking Christmas Eve bike tour begins with a stunning ride through Old Town and around the San Felipe de Neri church to view the city’s largest concentration of Luminarias.
We then proceed into the Country Club neighborhood, where every street is twinkling with holiday cheer and impressive light displays. This fantastic neighborhood also hosts an annual hot air balloon “glow” at sunset for your enjoyment. With this year’s VIP tickets, guests can fill up on even more holiday cheer throughout the evening, in the tasty form of spiced cider, hot cocoa, New Mexico Piñon Coffee (unlimited refills with your special, keepsake Routes mug), and locally-made biscochitos (a traditional NM cookie).
The entire tour is approximately one hour in length and will be experienced from the comfortable seat of our signature cruiser bicycles, which have been festively transformed into impressive light displays of their own!
Multiple routes, times, and bicycle options are available for your enjoyment. You may choose to rent a bike from us or bring your own bike at a discount (BYOBike). All rentals come with a helmet, bicycle lights, our festively decorated “twinkle light” bicycles, and -as always- Routes’ coveted goodie bags for each rider!
This year, compliment your heart-warming bike tour with a body-warming beverage and keepsake mug!
General tickets include a cup of locally made cider or New Mexico’s favorite pinon coffee. Want to enjoy your hot beverage throughout the events? Purchase a VIP Mug Club ticket and receive unlimited refills throughout the evening in our collectible Routes Bicycles mug – choices for VIP mug club tickets include Cider, NM Pinon Coffee, or local artisan Hot Cocoa from the Chocolate Cartel!
