New Mexico, Santa Fe
Flame-red chiles; golden adobe; snow-whitw peaks and sapphire sky: Ansel Adems, Thomas Wolfe and Georgia O’Keeffe were all smitten with New Mexico’s intensity. Enjoy a multitude of options for cycling, hiking, culture and history – and feast richly on the region’s phenomenal cuisine. Ride the stunning High Road to Taos and the Enchanted Circle. Spend a half-day rafting the Rio Grande River; explore ancient dwellings in Bandeller and Taos pueblo, and still have time to wander Santa Fe’s renowned art district.
The state has a cycling advisory board which is not very active. The bike infrastructure is still a bit poor. Cyclists can not use all the roads.
LandscapeNew Mexico has many mountainous areas, with the foothills of the Rocky Mountains lying in the north. To the east are the Great Plains, with vast plains and high ‘table mountains’. In central and southern New Mexico mountain chains are separated by desert plains. This area is also known as the Basin and Range Region. Because of this varied landscape there is a clear distinction in the vegetation. The cool mountain slopes are covered with conifers while in the south cacti are the main vegetation.
This state has a southern desert climate with very hot, dry summers. Winters are cool but not cold. New Mexico is among the driest areas throughout North America. Precipitation mostly occurs during fall.
