News for riders on Tuesday Thursday rides
From Ed Kjeldgaard
For those who want to avoid going down Tramway on those cold mornings, here is an alternate route: From Flying Star at Juan Tabo and Montgomery, take the sidewalk north on Juan Tabo to the Bear Canyon trail, then west on the trail, across Eubank and Wyoming, where it merges with Osuna. Take Osuna west just past San Mateo, then turn right over the new bridge over I-25 to the north diversion channel. North on the NDC, west on the Paseo del Norte trail to the bosque trail, then north to the Alameda open space. This route is 2-3 miles shorter, and not as cold!

The Sensible Winter Ride begins December 4, 2014
The “Sensible Winter Ride” begins Thursday December 4, 2014 at 11 am. Bikers meet in the parking lot that is at the west end of the Trader Joes store on Paseo del Norte in front of Luca’s Pizza. The address is 8850 Holly Ave NE, Albuquerque.

The 34 mile ride is a combination of short climbs and longer flat stretches. The ride meanders through the areas both north and south of Paseo del Norte and has a high point at the top of Academy Blvd in the High Desert neighborhood. Frequently riders will stop at Starbucks at Academy and Tramway Blvd. on the route back to the start.

The ride is led by Dee Friesen and Will Ferrell.
