Santa Fe, everyone’s favorite southwest Spanish colonial cultural mecca, is a place to stroll and take in its unique ambience characterized by the recognizable Santa Fe style architecture, and highlighted by its delectably spicy southwestern cuisine. The sprawling capital city features a central historic core that is the main attraction to millions of visitors.
Although cycling isn’t the first thing that comes to mind in association with Santa Fe, recent improvements in cycling infrastructure have created a very worthwhile biking experience for the easy scenic cyclist. Explore the downtown core, where many streets now have sharrows, and expand your ride on several bike trails that extend into the surrounding districts.
