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!

Defining the 15-minute city
Defining the 15-minute city

Defining the 15-minute city

The “15-minute city” may be defined as an ideal geography where most human needs and many desires are located within a travel distance of 15 minutes. Here’s what that means.


ATTENTION CYCLISTS AND PEDESTRIANS: Due to a valve rehabilitation project, we have had to close a portion of the North Diversion Channel Trail until March 8. Detour signs are posted and diverts trail users to Jefferson Street south to Montgomery. Washington Street can then be used to join up with the Hahn Arroyo which will later connect to the North Diversion Channel Trail.

It is important to us to work as safely as possible for the crews and the community. We are advising the community to avoid this area if at all possible. If you do choose to travel this route, please use caution when following the detour and obey all construction signage, slow down your speed, and allow for extra time to reach your destination.


Cities can’t build their way out of congestion. Creating more space for cars only attracts more cars.

The one proven way to reduce traffic is to take space away from cars, and hand it to more efficient modes like bikes and trains.

Listen to the ‘Bike Talk’ podcast:


City Hall - 400 Marquette Ave NW, 7th Floor Conference Room (Rm 7096)
Albuquerque, NM

City Hall is very easy to get to from the Alvarado Transit Center as well as the various Rapid Ride routes.

Any recommendations for best resources to locate a pair of keys that were lost on the Riverside Trail between the Hispanic Cultural Center and the Bike Rest Stop on Rio Bravo?
These stats highlight a clear pattern of deadly harm: drivers hitting people, because of how they’re driving, is 90 per cent of the problem on our roads.
Noticed this morning on my ride that the new curb for the ART bus stop at Washington and Central protrudes into the intersection by approximately two feet beyond the curb line (see photo). If you are in the bike line southbound on Washington it forces you into traffic or you can potentially hit it.
Please have the GABAC NW representative contact me.
Very disappointed in the new downtown street striping. For example, S/B 5th by the library is unsafe. Who wants to ride in the gutter through debris, between parked cars and the curb? How is one supposed to make a left turn onto Copper, from the curb? "Buffered lanes" may work in real cities with traffic gridlock but this is just ridiculous. Seems to be somebody's solution to a non-existent problem.
