Mike G. commented on Johnny_Mango's blog post Budget Cuts: "Golf Course Should Be Closed." What Else Is Ahead for UNM?
"I read it in the Daily Lobo about four months ago and recall it being on KKOB as well. This sum, however is not just going to a single coach, but the assistants, off. and def. coordinators, etc. The issue is, that our athletic department ( as do…"

"Ooh, calling out the fixies!   Like all that has been said before, there are many different factors coming into play here. For example, I ride a frame that would be a tad to small for someone my height, that is because my torso isn't that…"

What does Albuquerque ride?

Just a little curious, so enlighten me as to what your flavor of the bike world is. I know ABQ has a diverse pallete; we have foothills and alleys, mesas and ditch banks along with long and lonely desert highways. Where do you like to ride, and why? Albeit for commute or leisure, exercise or keeping the CO2 down, we all share this in common. So tell me about that special stretch of land that makes you love your daily ride.
