Ride Your Bike
Why use your bike instead of your car?
- Benefit from a little exercise—improves cardiovascular health!
- Spend less time driving and fighting traffic, which is especially worse during morning and lunch hours
- Help reduce the amount of cars on the road, which means fewer CO2 emissions, better air quality, and less congestion
- Put less mileage and wear-and-tear on your car
- Help us promote a bike culture in El Paso—supporting alternative transportation and a healthy lifestyle!
Bike+Ride: Bicycling and bus riding are two wonderful ways to get around town; and now you can combine them to improve your commute and extend your cycling range.
