Silver Avenue Bike Detours

Bike detours are in place for Silver Ave between Hermosa & Buena Vista. Bicycles will be instructed to use Lead and Coal instead. This is due to construction for improvement to the Silver Bike Blvd.  See the image below for detour details.

You can read about the Silver Ave Bicycle Blvd project and see the updated drawings for the section from Yale to Carlisle on the City of Albuquerque project webpage.  There will be a variety of changes to improve the Bicycle Blvd aspects, pedestrian use, and parking.

How the New HAWK Pedestrian / Bicyclist Crossing Signal Works

Help spread the word about how the new HAWK signal works. It’s unfamiliar, so the more people that know about how it’s supposed to be used, the safer it can be for everyone!

Upcoming Events


2017 Bicycling Community Meet & Greet

Tuesday, January 24, 2017
6:00pm – 7:30pm (doors open at 5:30pm)
Albuquerque Balloon Museum, Pugash Hall (upstairs)
No entrance or parking fees to attend

Please join us for the 2017 Bicycling Community Meet & Greet on Tuesday, January 24, 2017, 6pm – 7:30pm, at the Anderson-Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum. Doors open at 5:30pm to check-in.

Who is the Bicycling Community? There are many elements in addition to Riders. Planning, Engineering, Constructing, Maintaining, Legislating & allocating funding, Advocating, Organizing, and more are also important parts. All are invited!

The intent of the January Meet & Greet is for members from all of the various aspects of the community to come together.

There will be no speeches, no forum, no formal Q &A. Instead, an MC will make brief introductions. Then attendees can mix & mingle – meet & greet – enjoy light snacks & beverages – and peruse information about the bicycling community.

This will be a time to connect and enjoy sharing company. Then, in the following months, as projects, ideas for updates and improvements, and events are considered, the Bicycling Community can work together, hopefully with better channels of communication and understanding.

If you would like to have your group’s information included as a flyer or small display / poster in the info area of the Meet & Greet, please email Ann Overstreet, Ann@BikeABQ.org, for more details.

If you plan to attend, an email to RSVP@BikeABQ.org will be appreciated.

There is ample free parking for motor vehicles.
If you ride your bike, bring your lock – there will be a designated area to lock up in.

This event is co-sponsored by BikeABQ and the City of Albuquerque Department of Municipal Development.
