I have been plotting my bike route, into the center of the city. I have even communicated with the Sheriff for Santa Fe County and, the Police Chief for the City of Santa Fe. I am planning on moving to an area called Eldorado at Santa Fe, which is about 15mi., outside the center of the City of Santa Fe. My problem is, going to/from Eldorado at Santa Fe to/from the center of the City of Santa Fe. I have looked up the traffic laws for the State of New Mexico and, how heavily traveled the roads are. The Police Chief told me that, I can bike on US. 285, since there is a big shoulder, even though, the speed limit is 65mph. I was thinking instead, of going on Old Las Vegas Highway. But I was told, that OLVH is heavy n' fast, when it comes to the traffic. Any advice would be appreciated. My bike is a 2003 Specialized Allez Triple 24-Speed road bike with thin racing tires.
