Food and biking are strong suits of Albuquerque.  Bike Valet makes it easy to park, shop and enjoy the best of both worlds with no worries.

The veggie tamale from the Santo Domingo folks opened up my food palette expanding my conception of how good food can be.  Goodness you can taste the care in these.  We cooked with a heaping handful of fresh basil from Mago’s Farm all weekend long at our Bandelier campsite.  Food, bikes, artists and farmers create quite a celebration.  There was live music too!

Riding bikes to the local farmers market seems different but good.

“Every normal human being is forever recalculating, reorienting, reorganizing information and reaching for new understanding.  Thus, if you know…any human being in any line of work who is not rethinking, reappraising, and revising her or his previous assumptions, then charity requires you to summon the paramedics…on chance that there might still be time to get this party’s heart restarted.”
–Patricia Nelson Limerick, Something in the Soil
