If you're tired of riding over broken glass on Tramway (and hopefully on other roads as well), now you can do more than curse about it. You can take action.
The action to take is to call or email one or both of the engineers responsible for keeping bike lanes cleared in Albuquerque. Here are their names, numbers, and email addresses.
P.E. Asst. District Engineer, Maintenance
P.E. District Three Engineer
The Zucoskys, who provided the contacts, suggest you email the above engineers and stress the safety hazards broken glass on the shoulder causes. For one thing, bikes stopped for tire repair are more vulnerable to the hazards of passing traffic. For another, a blowout coming down Tramway at high speed can be catastrophic: a bike can veer uncontrollably into traffic, or go off the road into rocks and rough terrain off the shoulder.

Great scenery, great riding and great comradeship --- what more could you want.
Several of the 22 riders who participated in the two-days of riding in the Abiquiu area Sept. 9-10 said they would like to do it again next year.
Most of the riders stayed at Ghost Ranch, some camped at the Abiquiu Lake or stayed in other accommodations. The ride on Day 1 was from Bode's Mercantile to El Rito, with a lunch stop at El Farolito and ice cream to die for at the end.
Day 2 was from the intersection of NM 554 and NM 111 to Canon Plaza a few miles beyond Vallecitos.
