The Albuquerque Bicycle Coalition (ABC 7) has been riding gravel bikes in the city for more than five years, but recently decided to take the plunge and offer them to the public for the first time.
“It’s been really hard, we’ve been doing this for five years,” said Josh Brown, president of the Albuquerque Bicycle Committee.
“The city is growing.
It’s booming, but it’s not necessarily the same.”
Brown says the bikes are affordable, and they are making people feel at home in the downtown area.
“We see a lot of the people we serve as customers, as friends, as family, as neighbors, and that’s what it’s about.
We want to make sure that when you ride, it’s safe and comfortable,” he said.
The Albuquerque Bicycle Council is asking for public input on the bike, which they hope to debut in early 2018.
The group hopes to offer a few more models in the future.
“That’s the hope is we’ll be able to put in more models and make sure we have enough models available,” Brown said.
