  1. I'll be in Alb. next week with my bike - any suggestions? I'm looking more for scenic rides and a
    good workout than I am a technical challenge. Thanks in advance for either directions to trails or
    to knowledgable resources!

    The "correct spelling" would be Alburquerque ... As in "Villa de Alburquerque." ... Anglo's ....
    go figure.

    ABQ is only used at the airport around here .... Tell some one you are going to "ABQ" and they'll
    just think your going to (and mispronouncing) Abiquiu, which is pronounced a'Bee Q. Alb is used
    locally ... as is turkey ... and Albaturkey.

    Hardly anyone 'vacations' in England anyway - only 22% of Yanks actually own a passport.

    bomba - LGW every time...

    Why LHR of course. Not many flights out of ATL into LGW!

    Which is exactly the only I'd have known it.

    Tell some one you are
    >going to "ABQ" and they'll just think your going to (and mispronouncing) Abiquiu, which is

    Now that really depends on who you're telling it too. Where is Abiguiu?

    I generally talk about where to ride with other riders.

    Really? I hadn't heard that. Thanks for the heads up. It really isn't on my list of "must" ride
    location anyhow.
