Thank you El Paso, with your support, and the generous votes of our City Council, El Paso now has a Bicycle Advisory Committee!!! On Tuesday City Council will consider two agenda items. One calls for ending any new spending on bike lanes, the other calls for the creation of a Bike Advisory Council to help facilitate community investment and bicycle policy. We are asking all bicycle riders to join us as we urge a NO vote on 11.3 (ending spending on Bike Lanes), and a YES vote on item 11.4 (creating a Bike Advisory Council). It is important that we turn out on force to show the city and City Council that #WeRideElPaso, and that we not only need safe routes and bike lanes, but we want to play a roll in the planning and design of these facilities.
