Two Wheel Drive


We had so much fun supporting the Albuquerque Dirt Fiesta put on by Zia Rides . One of our assignments was to be at the “Donut Stop” alongside Two Wheel Drive. They had tons of the best donuts! The cyclists greatly appreciated it!! #cibolasar #twowheeldrive #Volunteer #nmsar #kindhearts #albuquerquedirtfiesta
This is cool! Check it out. Two Wheel Drive
Two Wheel Drive doing good in the community! #abqnobhill #supportlocal #beatcancer #signup #lobocancerchallenge
I just wanted to show off how gorgeous my 50 year old Peugeot looks with those stunning yellow tires from your shop. I was skeptical, but since they were the only tires in all
ABQ in the right size I got them. I couldn't be happier or more proud.
Can't make it to our collection day? Two Wheel Drive has volunteered to accept bikes ahead of the collection days for us. Just drop off your bike at 4001 Central Ave. NE, Albuquerque, NM 87109. Thanks to this great shop for helping us out!

Let's get this right-
It' DELMAR'S Trail, not Delbert's Trail.
Del set out on his first day of retirement to link the historic wood cutter roads on the north side of Cedro Peak. The trail is what it is- lots of character, maybe like Del-

Time for Advocacy-
Kind of... winters are busier in these times than in years previous, but we have a little more time to spend on cycling advocacy.
Our manager Zach continues his Off-Road/MountainBike work as a board member with our local club, A.M.B.A. The group has several projects they are working on including working with NM State Lands to adopt/develope the Mariposa Trail System outside of Rio Rancho.
Owner Charlie is working with Managers/Planners from the ABQ Open Space, Forest Service, National Park Service, and local Adaptive Sports Organizations to being the process of developing some designated Adaptive Mountain Bike Trails (AMTB) in public lands around Albuquerque. The trails would be go-to trails for Off-Road Handbikes and Trikes, developed with a rating standard and access to allow the Adaptive Community some of the same amazing experiences two-wheel riders get to enjoy routinely.
We are so excited for the initial support from our land managers Jim Satler (Open Space), Kerry Wood (USFS) and Attila Bality (NPS).
