yeah, i figured that you were pretty new here. the way you described "that long road at the foot hills before starting up". that road is NM14. some of the nicest twisties around here are on that road south of I40. just be careful, cuz the squids run that a lot in the summer on the weekends. that's a really fun loop though. NM14/337 south to NM55 into Mountainair. then west on NM60 to NM47 down along the river, back to ABQ.
let me know if you want to ride some time.
