    Job Market in ABQ, NM

    Whats up, i'm currently living in Dallas doing IT(Cisco) work. The job market here is pretty sad. How's things in Abq? Would love to relocate for bike reasons.

    My buddy worked in Telecom for many years here, but not sure how the market is now though. It's worth looking into,..good luck!

    I think the market is a little off right now. But we do have a special ski area for people from Texas. Just kidding. You will like New Mexico much better than Texas

    I already like it better than Texas and I dont ski, I have bad knees from basketball

    My wife and I have been to Red River, Taos, Abq, Santa Fe and loved it. The climate was amazing in the summer. Does it ever crack 100 in the summer in ABQ? Whats the average lows like in the winter?

    No dirtdawg, occasionally on Dorba despite the spandex ballet.

    Yeah, Alb gets to 100 in the summer, however after living in Shreveport, LA for the last 21 years and riding there in the summers, I an easily attest that 100 deg in Alb feels much cooler, since the humidity is in the single digits most of the time. Heck, locals complain if the humidity hits 7%..

    Winters are fairly mild but can be cold at times. Alb gets dusted with snow a couple times per year, but it usually melts off within a couple days.

    Spring is windy... very windy.

    I'm moving from Louisiana to Alb in Nov, having just accepted a job there. It's where i grew up, so now I get to come back home.

    To get ready for NM rides, I bought a bigger camel pak and have started carrying a case of beer in it with me during rides...

    You need to pass that info along to the brianc. He trains with the beer, but leaves it behind on the Bandolero rides.

    Given the company, I don't blame him.

    I had an extra flask of tequila that Icegeek carried so all was well.
