Looking forward to this Sunday’s CiQlovia in its International District location. The downtown iterations have been fun, but stretching out to other parts of town, particularly this section of Southern, a street fondly thought of by many, many area cyclists, is both a good idea and a bit of a marketing challenge. In fact, the… Read More CiQlovia Sunday: A Cool Experiment

Had the nicest “Ride Through Hellish Bike Infrastructure” experience just the other day with the two folks unprofessionally photographed below, Margie Davis founder of ABQ’s Cycling Peeps and Charlie Otto, former brewery master and long-time world bike tourist. The ride, taken generally through the northeast part of town really wasn’t that Hellish, except in the… Read More Bear Canyon Arroyo Trail: It’s Great Until It’s Not
