The NMTS website has a vast collection of suggested bicycle routes that cover New Mexico and beyond. (Look under “Routes/Maps” on the left side of our website to find them.) This collection of around 100 routes was created by Eric Russell when he as our webmaster a few years ago. Since their creation, some things have changed. Some of the routes are now out-of-date because roads have gotten better or worse. New trails and bicycle bridges have been built in Albuquerque. Also, there is better mapping software available to create maps including websites that will generate cue sheets and elevation profiles. The biggest change is the use of small GPS devices for navigation. Now is a great time to take advantage of the new technology and update our route collection.
I am leading the effort to update our club map collection and need your help. Sometime in March, I will have a meeting of interested members to come up with the best way to update our collection of routes on the website. I would like to see a committee of members take on the task of updating the routes (including adding new popular rides). In addition to the routes, I am planning on redesigning the web interface to access them. If you would like to help with this project, please email Chris Marsh at email@example.com.
The process is simple, just go to www.diabetes.org follow the links to my name and enter
your details. My plans are to travel to Seattle on May 3rd
renewing their friendship and representing NMTS. The ride will take place on May 10th and
you are welcome to join me and my teammates on the ride in the countryside.
The start point is at Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery in Woodinville, WA and promises to be
fun. Perhaps the host will have some samples of their very fine wines(?). Check out their
