Duke City Pedaler’s Sunday Brunch Ride was so popular they decided to bring it back for another year! Meet up downtown and hop on the pedaler then head out with the group to have brunch at The Boiler Monkey Bistro. After you’ve gotten your fill of crepes or biscuits and gravy, begin the leisurely ride to the Railyards Markets to check out hundreds of New Mexico’s finest food, farm, artisan and healing vendors. Once you’ve shopped all you can, pedal your way to a local brewery/taproom of your group’s choosing.

Plus, practice flying your new drone in the wide-open space of the Balloon Museum’s east lawn!
