The Edinburg Police did a great job explaining the rules of the road to the children at the October 1st Bike Rodeo. They used visual aids, they asked the children questions, and they explained the skills they needed to bike safely. At each station, the officers and volunteers were patient and engaging, making sure every child was able to complete the course. The kids were having so much fun they didn’t want to get off the bikes the city had provided for them to do the course. Thank you City of Edinburg and Edinburg PD for a fantastic event.
Bike Edinburg wants to be your voice, so the only way to get your concerns addressed is well, sharing them. This is what these gentlemen did on Tuesday afternoon when they spoke with one of our members. Awareness was the key word as one of them had been run off the road at least three times. What is really awesome about these guys is they commute to UTPA. One of them commutes from Elsa. Thanks guys for your time.
Bike Edinburg was formed in the summer of 2011 by keen cycling enthusiasts after one of our founding members had been hit by a car. We decided that something needed to be done to bring awareness about cycling to our fair city.
We’re pleased to be working with the City of Edinburg to organize and hold a bicycle rodeo for kids on October 1st. This event will be the kick-off for a long-term cycling awareness campaign. Exciting things are afoot in Edinburg.
Now, for some info on us. The following profiles will give you an idea of who we are and what we do with our bikes.
