SummerFest

For Saturday's Nob Hill SummerFest:

 

Immanuel Presbyterian Church in conjunction with Two Wheel Drive Bicycle Shop invites you to celebrate Summerfest this weekend by riding your bicycle over to Nob Hill and taking advantage of our secure and free valet bicycle parking 2 p.m - 10 p.m.

 

We have a fenced lot at 111 Hermosa Street, SE, less than half a block southeast of Central and one block east of Carlisle where there will be an attendant on duty at all times.  We ask you to pick up your bicycle by 10 p.m., but any left unclaimed will be taken to Two Wheel Drive at 1706 Central, SE and can be picked up during regular office hours.  This service is provided by Immanuel because we love Nob Hill and we celebrate two wheel power!

JJG, just a suggestion, but the trails which go across the foothills tend to be easier than those which go up towards the mountains. If you get into a rough spot, just walk around it. I really like it up there. Also, there are some nice areas west of Santa Fe near the Rio Grande. Enjoy.

JJG, there are many different trails in the foothills, some of which are very easy, some of which are very hard. Try starting in the northern foothills, near Elena Gallegos Open Space where the trails are smoother. Also, try some of the trails in the bosque. There are trails which run all the way from Rio Bravo in the S. Valley up to Corralles.
Check out Two Wheel Drive for some excellent maps for easier trails which can keep you exploring without getting lost.
Good luck, have fun, and keep the rubber side down!

I am looking to replace my son's bike which was stolen from our garage last week. He's about to be 9.

One thing I have had the hardest time figuring out is where are all the used bikes are sold in town. I figure there must be a plethora of used kids bikes out there aand I would like to avoid buying something from KMart, Walmart Target or Sears.

So, anyone know where to buy reasonably priced used bikes in town? I'm not looking for fancy here, just functional and pre-owned. I have scoured craigslist and been to a few thrift stores, but nothing in the past week and I don't have a lot of time to visit pawn shops and thrift stores unless I KNOW they have some selection.

Thanks for any advice!

Does anyone frequent Bikes + (read: Bikes Plus) on Holly Ave NE? I went in there to pick up a bike map and the two guys in there were very friendly and helpful. The shop isn't the closest to my location (Northeast Cyclery wins there, I think), but my loyalties have never been predicated by distance. Anyone have experience there, good or bad?

Brian, in my opinion, Two Wheel Drive and the Bike Coop have the best wrenches in town. Fast, effective, patient, and affordable.

i have a decent bike (a shwinn, that's about all i can recall at the moment) that's been out of service for about a year, it's been sitting by my house, has dust, no rust, needs a new chain, new cables, new tires, probably new gears i'm told, a spit-shine and it would be ready to go. i know it's going to top $100 but i've grown attached to this one and could probably find something as cheap and comparable thru classifieds but i want to learn how to care for this bike as well. can anyone recommend a good shop to take such a project to that will help get 'er back up and running for a reasonable price?

Hey does anybody know why the bike path is closed up by the General Mills plant?
Comment by Dick Chingadero on May 3, 2009 at 9:12pm
Well, here's an advanced welcome to Burque, Amy. Yes, a lot of people do commute by bike here. We're a pretty bike friendly city and have a fairly decent network of bike trail and bike lanes. Here's a link to a map of our trails. Click here. Right here. Yup.

I am moving to Albuquerque soon, and am looking forward to biking to work (a first for me). I was nervous when an apartment locator told me that this is uncommon there. You can imagine my excitement when I, accidentally, came across this article yesterday. Moving in three weeks, can't wait!
Comment by Dick Chingadero on May 3, 2009 at 9:41am
I agree. It's been a tough year to get going, what with the wind and the 50-ish-ness. That and I've only been able to get out on the rat-bike, the K2 needs a major tune-up and I don't quite have the guidas.

Graduation is in two weeks though, and following laying out some money for the party, I plan to get tuned and back on the road (Or down into the Corrales Bosque!)
