Red River Memorial Day Motorcycle Rally

Q: What has 30,000 motorcycles, 100 vendors selling food, leather and motorcycle accessories, live music in the glorious Southern Rocky Mountains, and a tour to benefit the Make-a-Wish Foundation?

A: It’s the biggest motorcycle rally in New Mexico, and a nearly three decade tradition in the little town of Red River: the Red River Memorial Day Weekend Motorcycle Rally.

Red River is one of New Mexico’s most popular summer vacation destinations due to its breathtaking scenery and cool mountain temperatures. Located in the high peaks of the Sangre de Cristo range of the Rocky Mountains, Red River is surrounded by over one million acres of National Forest, offering a wealth of recreational activities and some spectacular mountain rides; including the Enchanted Circle Scenic Byway, one of Northern New Mexico’s most popular day trips. This more than 80-mile trip takes you through Eagle Nest, Angel Fire, Taos and Questa, with amazing views of both alpine forest and high desert plateaus. For explorers, this beautiful ride has a lot to offer: the Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial in Angel Fire, the oldest continually inhabited pueblo in America (Taos Pueblo), the Taos Gorge, the DH Lawrence Ranch, Wild and Scenic Rivers, and Valle Vidal.

There are plenty of scheduled activities in Red River, with new ones added every year, so get on the road and head to New Mexico to kick off a great summer of riding in Red River, New Mexico.
