"Well these 2022 Highway Code changes will cause a bit of a stir, but necessary, especially around Parc Cenedlaethol Eryri - Snowdonia National Park. Vehicles must give way to cyclists (vulnerable road users) when turning.

Rule H1: New hierarchy of road users
Drivers of vehicles that can cause the greatest harm in the event of a collision bear the greatest responsibility to take care and reduce the danger to others. This principle applies most strongly to drivers of HGVs, LGVs, cars/taxis and motorcycles. Cyclists and horse riders likewise have a responsibility to reduce danger to pedestrians.

Rule H2: New priority for pedestrians at junctions
At a junction, drivers, motorcyclists, horse riders and cyclists should give way to pedestrians crossing or waiting to cross a road into which or from which you are turning. You should give way to pedestrians waiting to cross a zebra crossing (currently you only have to give way if they’re already on the crossing), and to pedestrians and cyclists waiting to cross a parallel crossing.

Rule H3: New priority for cyclists when cars are turning
You should not cut across cyclists, horse riders or horse drawn vehicles going ahead when you are turning into or out of a junction or changing direction or lane. This applies whether they are using a cycle lane, a cycle track, or riding ahead on the road and you should give way to them. Do not turn at a junction if to do so would cause the cyclist, horse rider or horse drawn vehicle going straight ahead to stop or swerve. You should stop and wait for a safe gap in the flow of cyclists if necessary."

7 Rules for Creating "15-Minute Neighborhoods"

We hear it everywhere we go: people want, and cherish, the kind of complete neighborhood where you can meet most of your daily needs within a 15-minute walk. What will it take to create more such places in North American cities and towns?

Good things are happening on site of our Rail Yards Streetscape project! Improvements to make pedestrian walkways safer, as well as other perimeter improvements to the Rail Yards property are currently under construction. If you look closely, you may notice the re-purposed railroad tracks that will soon become light poles.

Bike To Balloon Fiesta
Free Bike Valet Parking Available at Event

ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO, September 28, 2021- Skip the traffic and enjoy the ride! Ride or walk the North Diversion Channel (NDC) Trail to Balloon Fiesta.

The flat 8-mile NDC Trail starts at the University of New Mexico (UNM)/Lomas Blvd and ends at Balloon Park. There are many places to “park and bike” from, including REI off I-25 at Montaño.

If you are riding in from the Bosque, use the Paseo del Norte Trail to connect to the NDC Trail. If you are riding in from the Northeast Heights, do not use El Pueblo Road as the railroad crossings are dangerous for cyclists. Instead, use the Rutledge trail spur to connect to the NDC Trail.

Follow the signs to the free Bike Valet, which is located on the eastern side of Balloon Fiesta Park, just north of the Balloon Museum.

If possible, please use lights for the safety of you and other people on the trail.
Happy riding!
