........................................................................................................................................................................................

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — bosquetrailAlbuquerque may have a reputation for its food, culture and balloons, but it’s also earning mention as a hot spot for scenery-seeking cyclists.

The Paseo del Bosque Trail in Albuquerque has been named one of the country’s 15 “most scenic bike trails” in a new story from The Active Times.

The 16-mile multi-use paved trail that runs from the South Valley to Alameda and through the Rio Grande Valley State Park is not new to accolades. Sunset magazine once proclaimed it among the best trails in the Western U.S.

The bike trail nod is just the latest highlighting Albuquerque’s active culture.

Earlier this month, Outside magazine proclaimed Albuquerque one of the “10 best big cities for active families” alongside the likes of Austin, Texas, and Portland, Oregon.

In March, mountain-biking website Singletracks named Albuquerque to its list of the top 10 mountain bike cities in North America.
