Event organizers, including International District Healthy Communities CoalitionVision Zero Albuquerque, Healthy Here NM, and BikeABQ are heartily thanked and commended for the hard work and planning that went into a finely tuned event. Thanks also to walking/cycling community policing help from APD and to everyone else who made it such a pleasantly “chill but not chilly” Sunday mid-October afternoon.
