Distance from Routes via bicycle: Immediate / 0 Minutes / We are located IN Historic Old Town 

Routes is located on the North tip of Albuquerque’s historic urban core, a neighborhood interwoven with six museums and more than 100 local shops, galleries, and restaurants in a traditional New Mexican / Spanish environment.

Take in local and international art (not to mention vintage photographs of Albuquerque and Route 66) at the Albuquerque Museum, and enjoy a range of creative, interactive science environments for the whole family across the street at Explora. Other District highlights include prehistoric bones, a planetarium / Dynamax theater, diverse natural history exhibits, and ample opportunity for a sunny picnic in the park.

Experience the classical elegance of Old Town (the original center of Albuquerque, established circa 1706), which happens to be the perfect match to a Routes bicycle. Enjoy the intimate experience of gliding beneath the spires of the historic San Felipe de Neri Church; the sound of mariachi music drifting from a live performance in the City’s original civic plaza; the scent of traditional and contemporary southwestern cuisine; the flickering of thousands of luminarias (paper-bag lanterns) on Christmas Eve; the painted skulls and colorful outfits of dancers on Dia de los Muertos (November 1st); and the seamless blending of traditional culture and design with modern styles.

Continue 5 minutes west on Mountain Road for direct access to the Rio Grande River Trail, which links you to the City’s Biological park, Aquarium, Tingley Beach (fishing/activity area), the National Hispanic Cultural Center, the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta Park, and many other opportunities and locales.
