Written Directions

Start your route in Cedar Crest, NM (about 20 miles due East of Albuquerque, NM). Initially you'll start on State Route 14 but this will quickly turn into NM 337. Just take this south for about 30 miles till it runs into NM 55. Take a right on to NM 55 and head through Tajique, NM and through Torreon, NM and continue down to the route's end point of Mountainair, and you're done .

Scenery

Great high desert scenery. Mountains on your right and canyons on your left! Travel through and next to Cibola National Forest. Quaint communities.

Road Quality

Good pavement, "foot peg scrapping curves," and plenty of places to catch the shoulder and take in the scenery.

Roadside Amenities

Stop at the Goat Farm for goat milk fudge, goat cheese with green chili, kids can pet the goats, and more. See the Quarai Ruins--400 year old church--with towering adobe walls. Stop in Moriarity for a cold one and then cut back to the interstate for a 65 mile run to Albuquerque or head south to El Paso and the Border! Visit the Cibalo National Forest.

Great ride. The Pueblo along the route is a nice diversion. There are three slow (30mph) zones that look like prone speed trap areas. The road surface is pretty good, but not new. Once on the route, there is only one stop that has anything resembling a convenience store, and the fuel pumps didn't look promising

Just be careful on this road. Always alot of police on patrol, and not very forgiving of the posted 50mph speed limit along the route

Great road with a variety of twisties that open onto high desert plain. Excellent views of the Monzano Mts and deep canyons on the North end. Don't miss the old Spanish missions, well worth the time to check them out.
