Bike crash on El Pueblo? Tell your story

Wanted: Info on that time you crashed your bicycle at the train tracks on El Pueblo NE.The Greater Albuquerque Bicycle Advisory Committee is asking anyone who has had a “run-in” with the train tracks on El Pueblo (parallel to Paseo del Norte and just west of Jefferson NE) to tell them their story.Scot Key, a member of the committee, recently posted on his blog, betterburque.org, that the dangers in cycling over the train tracks on El Pueblo has come up, “I am not exaggerating. Every. Damn. Meeting.”The tracks, he says, have caused injuries to cyclists for years. But nothing has been done about it.And although the committee has started to look at 311 calls, 911 calls and litigation pertaining to incidents on the tracks, it wants to hear from people who have crashed because of the tracks.”We need you (and those you know) to come forward, anonymously if you wish, and add your name and incident to what will surely be a growing pile of cases in which someone has been injured by these train tracks. And don’t hold back just because you were lucky and only got some ‘road rash.’ Any crash information is pertinent,” he wrote on the blog.The email address is betterburque@gmail.com.
