In the last 15 years, more than 20,000 cyclists have participated in the annual fundraising event. Day of the Tread is known for its fun Day of the Dead inspired costumes that are seen on the roads surrounding Albuquerque one day every year. This year’s event brings back the favorites and some new twists including:

  • Start and finish area in the Sawmill District of Albuquerque, anchored by the Sawmill Market Artisanal Food & Beverage Hall. Various routes are available including 7-mile, 18-mile, 25-mile, 47-mile, 60-mile and 100-rile routes.
  • The Rail Runner nine-mile Family Ride, a 12-mile ride that includes a ride on the Rail Runner, 26-, 50-, 64-, and 100-mile routes. Tandem categories are available for the 25-, 47-, 60- and 100-mile routes.
  • Back is a favorite – the Tramway timed Hill Climb event sponsored by Prevender Financial.
  • A 4k Walk around Old Town.
