Bicycle & Roadway Safety
Whenever riding a bicycle, observe these safety tips:
- Always wear a helmet.
- Share the road. Look out for each other.
- Before riding out of a driveway into the street, stop. Look left, then right, and then left again for traffic.
- Ride on the right side of the street, with the flow of traffic.
- Stop at all stop signs and look left, right, and left again for traffic.
- Use reflectors and bicycle lights. They are required for night riding.
Albuquerque & Bicycling
Albuquerque is consistently ranked among the top U.S. cities for bicycling.
"Albuquerque features over 500 combined miles of on-street bicycle facilities and multi-use trails," said Albuquerque Mayor Richard J. Berry. "We will continue to be a bike-friendly city by supporting events such as Bike to Work Day."
In 2016, more than 1,000 cyclists participated in Albuquerque's Bike to Work Day.
Bike to Work Day also brings awareness to multimodal transportation where you can combine mass transit such as the Rail Runner and ABQ RIDE with your cycle-commute.
The Department of Municipal Development is constantly developing plans to improve roadways and pedestrian accessibility.
