What's going on, Albuquerque?
Re: cyclists - YAY! There was a concerted effort by the local bicycling community to overturn that ordinance, and Jennifer Buntz deserves a huge pat on the back for all the hard work she's poured into that campaign. She's one of the hardest working bike advocates I've ever known.
As for the parks and golf courses, I'm upset, but certainly not surprised. Just last night , I was passing by the ribbon park along San Mateo between Indian School and Constitution. The sprinklers were on full blast, despite the huge wind gusts. As the sprinklers shot water ten feet into the air, it didn't even touch the grass; it was blown onto passing cars instead.
And as much as golf courses may be an attraction, they have no place in a desert. The embodied energy cost of keeping up a golf course in a place that DOES have water is already an atrocity. Trying to do so in a climate like Albuquerque's is practically a sin.

Grassy parks either....
