🕯️ The Significance of Day(s) of the Dead 🕯️

In Albuquerque, the spirit of Dia de los Muertos runs deep, where the ancient traditions of this Mexican celebration blend with the rich cultural tapestry of the Southwest.

Day of the Dead is a celebration that dates back over 3,000 years. It’s a time when families come together to remember and celebrate their loved ones who have passed away. This beautiful ritual reminds us that death is not the end but a part of the continuous cycle of life.

The vivid ofrendas (altars), the scent of marigolds, the delicious food, and the sweet melodies of mariachi music, all come together to create a tapestry of love, respect, and remembrance.

Our Day of the Dead Bike Tour is a tribute to this fusion of culture, a moment when Albuquerque truly comes alive with the spirit of the season.
