On Monday, February 24th, Stephen Clark, aka “Bike Friendly Steve,” from the League of American Bicyclists, paid El Paso a visit, to learn more about our existing bicycle facilities, and offer some insight and advice to local transportation planners and Velo Paso members as to how we might make El Paso Bicycle Friendly. Over the past few years we have seen a good deal of improvement, but there’s so much more we can do. From better design of bike lanes (and improve our existing ones), to simple things like better signage, or even lockers and showers for bike commuters. Perhaps the biggest change we can help effect, with your help, is to change the conversation from making our roads safe, to making our rides pleasurable, and ultimately to make riding advantageous! There’s lots of work to do, and we’re still scribbling notes from Steve’s visit. So for now, here’s some of the news coverage: Non-profit to help El Paso become bicycle friendly city – KTSM Expert on bike-friendly cities visits El Paso today – El Paso Times El Paso bike lanes: Roads to be more cyclist friendly – El Paso Times Eastsiders react to El Paso’s bike programs – El Paso Times
