Northern New Mexico Bonus Extra Images

Tricia Szulewski tours Northern New Mexico on a Kawasaki Vulcan Vaquero along with Genevieve Schmitt on a Harley-Davidson Switchback and writes about it in RoadBike‘s May 2012 issue. (On sale 3/13/12)

Stopping in Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Angel Fire, Madrid, and Chama, they rode epic roads such as the Turquois Trail, The Enchanted Circle, and the High Road to Taos, amongst others. Be sure to pick up the May issue of RoadBike to read about their adventures.

In the meantime, here are some extra pics that didn’t make it to print.

    I was sent this link by my friend J. sandoval at the Santuario in Chimayo (and agree with Friar Roca’s words,”the best place on earth). Great photos of my favourite places. I have ridden my motorcycle from Chicago to NM annually since 1990,and have seen it all. Favourites are still,Chimayo, tha high road to Taos, Hwy.4 through the Jemez mtns., Hwy.64 and the loop through Angel fire and Red River, Hwy 14 through Madrid, Hwy. 60,…and the list goes on. I have also painted many of the old churches, ghost towns and landscapes of NM most of which can be seen @ I also agree that everyone should ride NM at least once …..beware of the RR tracks crossing ST. Francis and Cerillos Rd…they finally got me last September.
    Happy riding.

    • Love your artwork, Usama! Isn’t that beautiful stretch of our country inspiring? I can’t wait to go back. I’d love to even get a canvas out there next time and do a little painting myself.
