The gem of old town Albuquerque is this church. It is right on the plaza and you can walk from local hotels easily. Worth going in to see this currently operating church from several hundred years back.

Enjoy the church and its surrounding gardens, and then enjoy the rest of Old Town shops, free entertainment in the town square and nice places for lunch.

Your question is not at all clear to me. Weight restrictions for what? Riders? Riding what I wonder? I think this question may be posted in the wrong venue. Good luck finding the information you are seeking.
