NMSU Gets Bicycle-Friendly University Bronze Award
Kudos to the consortium that put this together ("...NMSU Bicycle Friendly University Taskforce, composed of representatives from the Teaching Academy, NMSU Police Department, Recreational Sports, Environmental Health & Safety and NMSU faculty ...").
When we did a weekend getaway to Las Cruces last winter, I noticed that the streets surrounding the campus looked pretty mellow (i.e., none of the insane speeders and lunatics I see in BombTown or Albuquerque) and surrounding communities were linked by fairly bikeable roadways. So the baseline stuff was there. Plus, they got all the important people into the room and around the table.
Anything of this nature going on at UNM? LANL? Los Alamos?
