Join Routes as we take you through the heart of Albuquerque, from the historic avenues in Old Town to some of the most impressive light displays in the Southwest. Our unique and intimate bike tours are the perfect way to experience the holiday sights, sounds, scents, and magic of New Mexico!
Now in our 10th annual season, our holiday bike tour continue to be Albuquerque’s most unique festive tradition for friends and families to enjoy!
New for 2020, our Bikes & Lights Holiday Tour has been reimagined with smaller group sizes, natural social distancing by bicycle, Certified New Mexico Covid-Safe practices, and (if you can believe it) even MORE CHEER than before! 🎄
Albuquerque’s traditional Old Town / Country Club luminaria displays may have been postponed this year due to 2020, but the spirit of the holiday season is alive and well – and is ready to be explored!
Instead, we have curated a beautiful and COVID-safe tour route that showcases the holiday light displays, festive landmarks, and heartwarming “hidden gems” throughout the historic neighborhoods of Albuquerque.
The entire tour is approximately one hour in length and will be experienced from the comfortable seat of our signature cruiser bicycles, which have been festively transformed into impressive light displays of their own!
