Scot Key is hoping some crowdsourcing will eventually help bicycles riders in Albuquerque get around easier (and safer).
Key, a longtime cyclist and member of the Greater Albuquerque Bicycle Advisory Committee, has started a communitywide campaign to measure the width of every mile of bicycle lane in the Duke City. The city says it has 540 bike lane miles and 170 miles of dedicated multiuse trails.
“What it boils down to is that it’s difficult to move forward with planning under the Complete Streets Ordinance until we have a good idea of where we are,” Key said.
But budget constraints and other problems have kept that from happening. So Key is hoping to get the city’s large cycling population involved in taking the inventory.
