We rented bicycles for the afternoon. This company was very professional in the sizing of the bikes, checking them for tire pressure, etc. Heather was especially helpful in giving us a map and outlining the points of interest along the way. We had a pleasant experience with the folks at this company.

We were on a FABULOUS Routes bike tour out to the balloon fiesta in 2016. We were again in Albuquerque last week to ride the delightful Paseo del Bosque Trail. We had our own recumbent trikes with us and I experienced a couple issues with my trike. Not knowing the local bike shops, I called Josh at Routes. He did not hesitate to say stop in this afternoon, I have time. He patiently fixed both issues and gave us solid advice on long term solutions. He is a delight! This place and staff is so reputable it is a joy to write a review.

AWESOME service from Routes! Very much appreciate the online reservation, so we did not have to worry about having bikes. And the process was very user-friendly...book in advance and save time for more riding. We had a great loop around Albuquerque, which, to our pleasant surprise, had a very extensive system of bike paths. Our route was 50% path and 50% bike lane...and we rode past Walter White's house! Ebikes were perfect for our loop, given some climbing mid way through. Very fun day in Albuquerque (and saw a LOT) thanks to Routes!

Be careful when getting your Bicycle serviced here. Young guy working has continued to add hidden fees and given wrong information. Unfortunate due to our family living in the neighborhood and have to go somewhere else.

We have tried to rent here, simply cannot stomach the employees/owners who dont listen. At all. Cannot get a word in edgewise to ask a simple question. Additionally, condescending attitued and poor selection of bikes.
Glad that others love this place, seems to me they have gotten a bit arrogant with their success.

Thank you, Heidi, for an incredible taco and bicycle tour of ABQ. You were made to work with people. It was such a great way to see the city in a way we never would have found on our way. We learned so much while tasting some great tacos. Thank you!!

In the words of Tuco Salamanca this bike tour offered by Routes is "tight, tight, tight". Heather and Josh lead our bike tour of the popular show Breaking Bad. There are actually five offerings of this tour but my wife and I only were in the ABQ for one day so we could do one of the tours.

Our tour was "Walts descent", which focused on Walts transition from chemistry teacher to well... you know, Heisenberg. The other tours focus on other characters; Jesse, Mike, and Hank.

From the beginning our tour guides focused on safety and comfort. They sized us up for bikes, gave us helmets, and discussed safety ideals as we cruised through the city. I had initial concerns about biking in the city but ABQ is a very bike friendly town and our tour guides took care of us. It was a relief to see such concern about safety.

The tour lasts about 2.5 hours and I don't want to give away any spoilers but at each stop was discussion about the location we were at. The only spoiler I have is that Heather and Josh are die hard fans of the show and really delve into character development. It's great to learn some of the psychology of the show from the tour guides as well as why this or that scene was selected by the writers of the show.

A true review should have negatives as well as positives, even though I'm hesitant that people might dwell on these and miss out on a great experience, so here it is the big negative. if you are only superficially aware of the show or you have watched the show only casually then my guess is that you will not enjoy 2.5 hours of slow biking and in depth discussion about a "tv show". You might like the discussion surrounding the architecture and history of ABQ but that might be the extent of your enjoyment.

For myself, a die hard fan and foreigner to ABQ, I would have to say that I walked away with a memorable experience that I will not soon forget. Also, Heather and Josh throw in a few goodies on the way out the door that are hilarious and well thought out. Muchos Gracis Heather and Josh.

I went on a town tour with Bill and Gill, who was in training. Bill was full of Albuquerque history and urban knowledge. He loves where he lives and shares his passion. I had been on another bus tour so he deviated our tour to include places I hadn't visited. The Rio Grande overlook, Towle Farm and Pop Fizz on the Hispanic Educational campus were interesting local places. We even popped in on a talk in progress giving the history of Albuquerque via mural. Great place and people!

This place has great customer service. We rented bikes for 1/2 day ($20 for four hours). They have hybrids, road bikes, mountain, and cruisers to choose from. They also include helmets and bike locks. Bikes have water bottle cages on them. Bikes were in good condition. Bikes had bells on them. Brands: Specialized and Diamondback.

They showed us a bike route map and wrote which stops are fun to see. We rode along the Bosque trail to the Casa Rodena Winery (wine tasting $8), Los Poblanos (lavender farm with a store selling soaps and gelato), Rio Grande State Park (walked thru and read exhibits), rode by the zoo to see elephants (they are across the street from bike trail), and Tingley Beaches (small ponds with ducks floating). This route took us 3 1/2 hours. It was about 20 miles.

The store also offers group and private tours. Stop in and chat with the staff and they will help you decide the best option for you.

The Bosque trail is about a mile from the shop.
