Routed Romance

Vino on the Rio Singles Bike Tour

In September of 1978, Queen staged an infamous nude, female-only bicycle race to promote their double A-side single "Bicycle Race"/"Fat Bottomed Girls," proving once and for all that bicycles and romance go together perfectly. Whether you are single or in a relationship this Valentine's weekend, look towards the Bosque and a shiny two-wheeler to fulfill all of your romantic hopes. Routes Rentals and Tours, which opened in Old Town in 2011, is hosting two different tours this V-day, as well as on Saturday and Sunday. The "Romance on the Rio" couples tour takes travelers along some of the most romantic spots along the Rio Grande to experience spectacular landscapes, Valentine's folklore and New Mexican architecture. For single ladies and gents, the "Vino on the Rio" takes un-attached riders to the idyllic Casa Roneña Winery for a full wine tasting and tour. All tours end up back at Routes headquarters where participants can enjoy goodies such as hot cocoa and locally-made gourmet chocolates. Visit for full tour information and pricing options.
