UNM/Nob Hill to Central and Tramway Fragment

Direct link to map on Google Maps.
Getting from UNM/Nob Hill to Central and Tramway, from which one accesses the east mountains or foothills rides, is a little complicated. Riding striaght up Central is pretty dangerous, as there is no bike lane at all. There is a way to wind through the neighborhoods south of Central. It is straight most of the way with several zigzags. There are some variations on this, but I think this is one of the most common routes, and works in both directions. It looks more complicated than it is, and once you go through it, it is not hard to remember.    
Take Stanford S to Coal, there is a nice new bike lane on Coal.
E to Graceland,
S to Zuni,
E to Valverde,
S to Trunbull.
E to Ortiz (just after San Mateo) and go S one block to Southern.
E on Southern past San Pedro and past a park on the right.  
S on Utah for a short block,
E on San Joaquin one block,
S on Virginia then immediately E again on San Joaquin, towards Wyoming,
N on Wyoming 2 blocks to Susan. There not much of a shoulder on Wyoming, but it is only for 2 blocks.
Susan will do a little right left chicane at Moon and become Southern again.
E on Southern across Eubank to Juan Tabo.
S on Juan Tabo
S on Singing Arrow, you will pass thorugh probably the nicest trailer park in town.
N on Dorado
E on Wenonah to Tramway
Left (N) on Tramway which will take you to Central. From here you can go E to Tijeras and all the east mountain rides, N to the fingers, or S to the Four Hills neighborhood, which has a nice short hilly loop you can ride around.   
Alternately you can just ride up Constitution from the UNM area, as shown on the Tramway Loop map. There is a bike lane on Constitution the whole way. This will dump you out on Tramway out a bit north of Central.
