I agree with most, the Nob Hill/UNM will probably suit you guys just fine. It's a very hip area, if you will. Great little bars and restaurants down off Central. I would love to live down there. And biking on the east side is a breeze. Bike lanes run all over this side. And plenty of farmer's markets around town, there is also the Sunflower Market on Lomas in the Nob Hill area, it's a chain much like Whole Foods, I actually prefer it over Whole Foods. I think you'd really enjoy it here though. It's a much slower pace of living then Chicago. And the weather is 10x's better.

For what it's worth, ALBQ was rated 17th best city for cycling by Bicycle magazine. A comprehensive plan, bike boulevards, increased bike lanes and the bike bridge over I-40 were mentioned in the article. As a comparison Chicago was ranked 10 (too high in my opinion) Seems like a decent and growing bike infrastructure, good opportunities for roadies and really cool opportunities for mountain biking as well.

why are people such Hater's! Every body can't live on the east side of town. Talk about a mess what would we look like if nothing was bulit on the west side with the same population, maybe the Bronx?. I would think houses up in Sandia Heights are urban sprawl .
