I rode from Scorro to Albuquerque a few years ago on a tour following the El Camino Real route.  The state and county highways that generally parallel I-25 provide nice low-traffic riding through many small towns and historic Indian pueblos. There are many opportunities for good Mexican food, and you'll be posed the official New Mexico question: "Red or Green?" (What type of chili sauce do you want? It's served with practically everything.)  Riding on the interstate is permitted.  Albuquerque has a bike trail that follows the Rio Grande.

I haven't ridden between I-25 and Reserve, so can't provde any insight on that route.
