The 50-Mile Activity Loop is the City of Albuquerque’s proposed 50-mile, multi-use trail and bikeway facility that aims to fill the gaps in our existing trails and bikeways facilities to create a bicycling, running and walking loop around the city. The project benefits quality of life and health and wellness for locals with opportunities for economic development, tourism and possible events, such as a 50-mile or Century ride and charity walks.
The City of Albuquerque has more than 400 miles of bike paths and trails with more in the works.

Mayor Berry has signed up Albuquerque in the US Dept of Transportation Mayors’ Challenge for Safer People and Safer Streets. For more details, visit: http://www.dot.gov/mayors-challenge
BikeABQ wrote a letter to Mayor Berry encouraging him to participate. You can view that letter here:
Dear Mayor Berry,
The BikeABQ Board would like to encourage you to participate in the Mayors’ Challenge for Safer People and Safer Streets. The Challenge is based on the 2010 USDOT Policy Statement on Bicycle and Pedestrian Accommodation. USDOT Secretary Foxx recognizes the benefits of walking and bicycling and is encouraging these transportation projects. The Mayors are challenged to take a Complete Streets approach. Since Albuquerque has a Complete Streets ordinance, we believe Albuquerque has a good chance of shining over other cities. Challenge cities win by improving walking and bicycling. The 50-mile Loop will be a great improvement for Albuquerque’s bike transportation.
USDOT will invite Mayors’ Challenge participants to attend the Mayors’ Challenge Summit kickoff at USDOT’s Headquarters’ office in Washington, DC on Thursday, March 12, 2015. More information can be found at the website: http://www.dot.gov/
This is a great opportunity to share technical know-how and enforcement programs with other participating cities. Please seriously consider making Albuquerque look outstanding in this endeavor. We hope to hear from you with a favorable response.
