Dia del los Muertos Marigold Parade in Albuquerque

October 29th, 2013

The Day of the Dead has been celebrated in Albuquerque with the Annual Marigold Parade for several years now, and the event keeps getting better and better. I’m actually getting to go to this event this year, not as a participant, but rather as a spectator. I’ll have to go early to get a good spot to sit along the parade route, but early I’ll be with a book in hand. Below is the poster of all the need to know info. The 2013 Marigold Parade is a joint effort put on by La Raza Unido & Cambio. La Raza Unido and Cambio, Inc. are non-profit entities in Albuquerque that promote social change and help the poor. Their service and dedication are commendable, and they are vital parts of the community. Many thanks to them and the County of Bernalillo for making this Marigold Parade happen!calaveras de dia de los muertos

For more general info on Dia De Los Muertos, the Marigold Parade in Albuquerque and to find out what a calavera is, read my previous posts. They’re full of great information that inquiring minds NEED to know, and for more parade info click on the poster to go to their website. And remember..no papers, no fear. There is hope and help.

The Best Bike Rental Experience in Albuquerque

July 11th, 2013

If you are coming to Albuquerque, and would rather rent a bike than rent a car, you need to check out Routes Rentals and Tours. If you are renting a car, but considering doing some off-road trekking or touring in the city or out, Routes is there for you too. Specialty Tours? Yup, they’ve got that covered as well.

Routes is located just two miles from our highly rated Adobe Nido Bed and Breakfast, and we will be happy to take you to pick up your bike and pick you up when you return it. They will also deliver bikes to Adobe Nido, and pick them up when you’re done, so no matter what, you’re covered.

Routes Bike Rental Albuquerque We’ve had quite a few of our very awesome guests rave about Routes, as they offer many types of rides, including street bikes, off road bikes, hybrids, electric bikes and more. They also offer fantastic tours and do-it-yourself information to customize your own experience here in the Duke City and surrounding areas.

We even have some guests who are renting bikes to attend the Albuquerque Ballooon Fiesta this year. If you are a biking enthusiast, you owe it to yourself to check out Routes. They’re definitely the best in Burque. Check out their website for the most up to date tour info.

Some of their Specialty Tours coming up…

Bikes and Brews – For those who love the suds
Biking BaD – For Breaking Bad Fans
Winery Bike Tour – No whining!

Albuquerque is a very bike friendly City and has been voted one of the Best Biking Cities in America. Routes has been voted #1 for Bike Rentals in Albuquerque. A winning combination folks. Do it! And consider Routes, I wouldn’t steer you wrong. Just remember us when you talk to them, and let them know we sent you! They do have lodging packages with a few other places, but I know you’ll have a better time with us, and we’re closer! Why aren’t we packaging with Routes? We are independent cusses, and they never asked!

Some other bonuses…we have a safe and secure place to keep your bikes, a very laid-back atmosphere, huge jetted tubs to soak your bones after a day of riding, and a Finnish sauna to sooth your body and soul. No one else has all that, not even for twice the price. To make it even better, the #1 day spa in Albuquerque is just a half mile away and full service groceries and liquor are just around the corner. What are you waiting for!
