Survey & Look For Me


Survey for Albuquerque Bicycle Friendly City application

Albuquerque is applying for designation as a Bicycle Friendly Community (BFC). In support of this effort the League of American Bicyclists (LAB) has asked the Department of Municipal Development (DMD) to ask community members to fill out a survey regarding their impression/experience with biking in Albuquerque.

The LAB will be using the results of the survey as they vet the application and also when they update the annual report card for our city. The survey takes about five minutes to complete.

Please support this effort by taking the survey before September 15 at

Silver Avenue 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!
