BICYCLE MASTER PLAN
The Santa FE MPO Transportation Policy Board Approved the Santa Fe Metropolitan Bicycle Master Plan on April 12th, 2012 and is available for download below.
The Metropolitan Bicycle Master Plan is for the Santa Fe metropolitan area. This Plan serves to coordinate investments in Multi-use Trails and On-Road facilities, establish common guidelines for design, construction and maintenance, and develop shared strategies on education, enforcement and encouragement of bicycling as a transportation choice in the Santa Fe area.

BIKEWAYS MAPPING PROJECT
The Bikeways Mapping Project was conducted during the first phase in the development of the Bicycle Master Plan. The project identifies a system of major multi-use paths and significant roadways that may comprise an “arterial bikeway” system in the MPO area. Possible improvements to these bikeways, and connections to them and between them, were analyzed and prioritized with respect to each segment’s contribution toward system connectivity, anticipated local demand basedon land use, specific safety advantages, and feasibility. The list of priorities for trail and road improvements from this project were finalized during the development of the Master Plan.
SANTA FE BIKEWAYS & TRAILS MAP
The Santa Fe MPO seeks to make bicycling a safer and more convenient form of everyday transportation for citizens and visitors. Santa Fe is an ideal bicycling environment due to its compact size, moderate terrian, and pleasant weather. A bicyle offers an alternative travel choice for those concerned about the environment, and requires relatively little infrastructure. In addition, bicyles can have travel times comparable with automobiles for short distances and are less expensive to own and operate than automobiles.
The Santa Fe Bikeways and Trails Map was created through public input to show the perceived suitability of on-street facilities for bicycling. The conditions at specific locations are subjective, always changing, and may vary from what is shown on the map. Please use the map as a community-based guidance to help you select a bicycling route that meets your needs and skill level. Always use caution to evaluate the current roadway conditions.
