      I am not 100% sure about that as I tend to do more mountain biking than road. Having said that...I do see bikers on the (far) shoulder of the interstate every once in a while but thats between santa fe and albuquerque...I dont frequently go south past ABQ.

      Good luck on the trip up here. I'll look ya up when you're here..maybe meet up for lunch or something.

      Current location: Tatum, NM

      The original plan was tossed out last night for making the trek to Roswell due to high winds. This morning we went to the local library, which doubles as a Visitor Center, for a free map of New Mexico. I grab a map and thought "man this is detailed". Then the librarian makes the statement to check the date of the maps ...this one was from 1988!!!!!!!!!!!!! . Every map was from the 90's, and these are NM DOT distributed maps. We find one from 2010. Fingers crossed. Going to head out this evening, trying again with Roswell as the goal.

      lol, welcome to ABQ/NM man. The weather here is a tricky bitch. I was rollin around in the jeep with the doors off Friday/Saturday then Monday/Tuesday we had snow And I am sure we'll have another storm before summer is upon us.

      Anyway, glad you made it safe and sound...I'll be available this weekend if you can meet up for lunch or something. PMing number
