Really beat the traffic and ride your bike to Balloon Fiesta!
Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta has created a Bike Valet service for Balloon Fiesta! Avoid congested traffic and parking conditions near Balloon Fiesta Park by riding your bike.
The bike trail runs along the AMAFCA North Diversion Channel crosses underneath Paseo del Norte and Alameda Blvd. continuing north where it crosses from the west side to the east side ending just north of the Balloon Museum. There you will find the Bike Valet staffed by local bicycle group volunteers.
These helpful volunteers from Bike ABQ, NM Touring Society and City of Albuquerque Parks and Recreation Bike Safety Program will have a two part ticket with one half going to the rider and the other half securely attached to the bike. The Bike Valet will provide a safe & secure location to store your bike allowing you to enjoy Balloon Fiesta worry free. Simply present your half of your valet ticket to retrieve your bike.
Bike Valet hours of operation
- Morning Sessions 5:30AM to 10:30AM
- Evening Sessions 5:00PM to 9:00PM
Bikes not picked up from the bike valet area will be removed and stored. The bike owner will have to call the Balloon Fiesta main line at 821-1000 to arrange pick up.
Bike Valet is provided as a free service to promote bicycling to the Balloon Fiesta.
Please remember when you ride to the morning sessions you will be arriving in the dark and when you leave the evening sessions you will be leaving in the dark. Headlights, taillights and rear reflectors are a must and above all wear a helmet.
