Santa Fe and the surrounding area offer hundreds of miles of mountain biking trails, featuring all manner of terrain—from high-elevation rugged alpine and densely forested mountain singletrack that can be reached via convenient bus service (255 Mountain Trail Route) to in-town trail systems with multiple access point trailheads to piñon-and-juniper-covered destinations just a 30 to 40 minute drive from downtown Santa Fe, designed with varied-level purpose-built trails.

The area's trails are not only adored by riders, but celebrated by the greater biking community: Singletracks Mountain Bike News rated The City Different #7 in the Top 10 Mountain Bike Destinations in North America and the International Mountain Bicycling Association, which recognizes the pinnacle of mountain biking communities, designated Santa Fe a Silver-Level Ride Center.

For those who love a gravel bike, there are plenty of paved path options to get you exploring from here to there. And the long open roads and mountain vistas beckon the road cyclist.
