"Two useful links: http://www.cabq.gov/bike http://www.cabq.gov/bike/documents/bike-map.pdf/view Please be sure to review the rules of the trails first  make sure your child has a helmet - it is the law - and enjoy!  I agree with Krista…"

RiderJohn replied to Amanda Reed's discussion Freakish Amount of Moths
"I heard they will be migrating to cooler areas.  So they should head up to the mountains, though it might take some time."

RiderJohn replied to Amanda Reed's discussion Freakish Amount of Moths
"These are Miller Moths and yes it is freakish.  I have lived here about 11 years now and I haven't seen them like this since my first year here.  Unfortunately there is not much you can do about it.  Keep the lights out at night…"

RiderJohn replied to SteveJ's discussion Satellite Coffee Prices Up (a rant)
"Same ownership as Flying Star of course, and I think Flying Star is overpriced.  Flying Star doesn't have enough healthy low-cal choices, and their portions are ridiculously big.  One can not cause the owners of trying to help our…"

RiderJohn commented on Benny the Icepick's group Burque Bikers
"Sun Ray you have identified what many of us already realize about that area: it is dangerous for cyclists! As a cyclist, I am annoyed by the UNM student population that rides unsafely in that area. No helmets, dark colored clothing, running stop…"

RiderJohn replied to Mike G.'s discussion What does Albuquerque ride? in the group Burque Bikers
"The Duke City to Santa Fe via Tijeras and Madrid. This is up the Turquoise Trail.  The ride to Madrid is amazing! Yes there is a lot of climbing to get to Madrid (not to mention that much more to get to Santa Fe), but I love to stop in Madrid,…"

RiderJohn replied to Krista's discussion legal questions in the group Burque Bikers
"Congestion and impatient people whether on bikes or driving scooters or driving cars. It is definitely a dangerous world out there. And cyclists (me being one of them) need to be patient in congested areas like UNM!"

RiderJohn replied to JMG's discussion Question about bicycle helmet design in the group Burque Bikers
"Face plant? Ouch. A friend of mine sent me an article that concludes that people can be seriously injured at very low speed and that the height from which they fall and bang their head has a lot to do with the degree of injury they suffer. We have…"

RiderJohn replied to Krista's discussion legal questions in the group Burque Bikers
"Uh, partly true. It's the intent of that message that matters, which is to say, "you better do all you can to protect yourself." Cyclists are even more vulnerable to cars than motorcycles IMHO."

RiderJohn replied to Krista's discussion legal questions in the group Burque Bikers
"Of course. Unless other witnesses would have implicated the driver."

RiderJohn replied to Krista's discussion legal questions in the group Burque Bikers
"Perfect. Krista, listen to this guy. I commute and do so with confidence and assertiveness in traffic and I do exactly as David suggests: assume NOBODY sees me, and assume NO car, pedestrian, cyclist, motorcycle or other entity will obey the rules…"

RiderJohn replied to Bar Shirtcliff's discussion The Fastest Cyclist in Town in the group Burque Bikers
"Very nicely said. When I first returned to road biking in Albuquerque, I was too scared to ride in the streets and so my dedicated effort to regain road cycling fitness was self-constrained to the paths, especially the Bosque trail. There IS a lot…"
