We are avid cyclists from L.A. planning a trip to Alb. and Santa Fe. I keep reading horror stories about the goatheads that lurk in the area ready to ruin a cyclist's day--even on paved bike trails. Is this really a problem? What do the locals do to prevent/minimize the problem? If we rent a bike locally, will it come with tire liners or some other fix so we can spend our day riding and not constantly swapping tubes and pumping up tires?
Thx in advance for sharing your knowledge.
