Free Bike Valet Parking Available at Event
ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO, September 28, 2021- Skip the traffic and enjoy the ride! Ride or walk the North Diversion Channel (NDC) Trail to Balloon Fiesta.
The flat 8-mile NDC Trail starts at the University of New Mexico (UNM)/Lomas Blvd and ends at Balloon Park. There are many places to “park and bike” from, including REI off I-25 at Montaño.
If you are riding in from the Bosque, use the Paseo del Norte Trail to connect to the NDC Trail. If you are riding in from the Northeast Heights, do not use El Pueblo Road as the railroad crossings are dangerous for cyclists. Instead, use the Rutledge trail spur to connect to the NDC Trail.
Follow the signs to the free Bike Valet, which is located on the eastern side of Balloon Fiesta Park, just north of the Balloon Museum.
If possible, please use lights for the safety of you and other people on the trail.
