Dream America: People Friendly Cities

A few weeks ago, Steve Clark from the League of American Bicyclists visited Albuquerque to evaluate our ability to become a more bike friendly city. This fantastic article covers the exciting events which occurred on that day and what this all means for Albuquerque.

On Tuesday, April 8 Mayor Berry kicked off his 50 mile healthy travel initiative with a ceremony on a trail linking the Mile High District to Uptown in Albuquerque.   This coincided with a visit by Mr. Steve Clark from the Bicycle Friendly Community program run by the League of American Bicyclists.  The day’s festivities moved Albuquerque in healthy directions.  Cities that rate highly as walk and bike friendly also rank as top places to live.  Elected officials, professional staff, businesses and community advocates are working on this synergistic development.
