Our Mission at VeloPaso

The mission of Velo Paso Bicycle-Pedestrian Coalition is to make bicycling and walking safe and accessible for everyone in the Paso del Norte region through education and outreach.

Velo Paso works toward a Paso del Norte region where bicycling and walking are safe, easy, and economical forms of transportation and recreation for everyone. We will do this through education programs that feature safety training and bicycle skills courses, public awareness campaigns, biking and walking accessibility campaigns, and building support for bike- and pedestrian-friendly infrastructure and culture. By working with public and private partners, Velo Paso can contribute to improving air quality, reducing traffic congestion, lowering health costs, and supporting safe and healthy communities in the region.


n.Latin root word for fast, swift, rapid; Earliest bicycles were known as velocipedes (veloc-swift + ped-foot); Bicycle in French; Internationally accepted word for bicycle.
We work to improve conditions for bicyclists and pedestrians in the Paso del Norte region. Though we come from many different fields and backgrounds, our members share one thing in common: a desire to give a voice to the voiceless and to create alternative transportation options that will make our region the envy of the world.
