Gearing Up Bikes . Taos . New Mexico

Welcome to Gearing Up Bikes in Taos, New Mexico!

TAOS is a magical, mystical, spiritual center, located in Northern New Mexico in the spectacular Sangre de Cristo Mountains, so named for their purple-red hue when the sun is setting. The Taos area may be the best kept secret for mountain biking + road rding. The scenery is spectacular from the saddle of a road bike, mountain bike or fat bike. There are hundreds of miles of singletrack and doubletrack trails, both in the mountains and in the valley for all skill level riders. And if road riding is your preference, there are numerous enjoyable routes on the road for all levels of riders.
