** Our Legends & Lore Haunted Bike Tour is currently scheduled in Late October of each year **
Enjoy a nocturnal bicycle journey through supernatural Albuquerque on this exclusive multimedia tour offered only during Halloween.
Join Routes as we take you off the beaten path and into the dark & supernatural heart of Albuquerque. This bicycle tour experience explores the lurid history, characters, and culture that make our city unique – a community on the edge of the Wild West with roots in ancient cultures and a long history of notorious outlaws and rogues.
We begin by visiting a haunted saloon and calm our nerves with a shot of premium tequila (riders 21+), then pedal on to explore the legends, frontiersmen/women, and some of the spookiest locations in New Mexico with nothing but a lantern & a bicycle light. Legends & Lore offers the only all-dark, all-real, all-inclusive, and historically-grounded bicycle tour experience in New Mexico. Go where no bus, van, or trolley can travel. Are there ghosts & terrors along the Rio Grande River? #seeforyourself
About the Tour:
Routes’ Legends & Lore Haunted Bike Tours are presented for adults and open-minded children (12+) seeking an extraordinary experience of Albuquerque & New Mexico. Each tour involves cycling across moderate terrain to several distinct sites after nightfall, spans approximately 3 hours and visits historically haunted locations – many only accessible by bicycle.
We commence at our location in Historic Old Town at dusk. Bicycle-safe costumes are encouraged, and warm, comfortable clothing (gloves, jackets, scarves, close-toed shoes, etc.) is recommended. Candy, guides, and bicycles are provided for your enjoyment. (We also have a BYOBike discount available)
*Riders providing their own bicycle MUST have front & rear safety lights to participate. Also available to rent for $5 a pair. It is also recommended that BYO(B)ikes have thorn-resistant tubes, to ward off ‘Goatheads’ & other sharp objects.
