Visiting Albuquerque in Nov/Dec...where to ride?

Actually three questions.
1) Should I bring my mountain bike or road bike?
2) Is there a good shop in town to ship my bike to?
3) Most importantly: Where should I ride? (MTB or road)

Thanks!

Hi,
I'm from Roswell, about 190 mi. sse of Albuquerque. I haven't done much riding up there, but I know that it is a very bicycle friendly area and there's lots of good cycling for both road and mtb. Also quite a few pretty decent shops. I'm sure this link will be very helpful http://nmcycling.org/. The site contains lots of information about clubs and rides in the area.
Happy cycling!

I just got into abq myself. I heard there are lots of riders and good roads just east of the city in the Sandia mountains area. I have yet to check it out. I'll try to get out there this weekend and see what it looks like.

For a shop in town I like cycle cave: http://www.cyclecave.com/ It's literally a mom and pop shop, good people.
