Walking & Bicycling

Information about the benefits of walking and bicycling in Albuquerque.

Bicycling and walking are the healthiest modes of transportation available. Walking and bicycling to work is easy, affordable, enjoyable, and most importantly, good for your health.

Most importantly, our environment does not suffer any pollution using these methods.
