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.
Saw these bikes parked outside of La Pesca over on 107 a few days go. Two bikes and a child’s trailer = AWESOME.
I see this bike quite often outside that vintage shop on 107. I finally had a chance to stop and take a picture of it. I’d bet that it belongs to someone who works there.

Name: David Moreno
I’ve been riding since: Like most everybody, I rode when I was a kid. I stopped riding as I got older, but I wish I hadn’t. I started riding again in May of 2010 – by far, one of the smartest things I’ve done.
About my bike: I wanted a bike that was comfortable, dependable, and was capable of doing whatever I wanted it to. My bike was almost all the way there, but I added a few things. Now I can do everything I want to on this bike: commuting, long rides, and light touring. I have a plethora of bags for my rack and a trailer to haul my goods. This bike is a beast.
Places I go on my bike: I commute daily to UTPA, and I’ve been places far and wide in the valley. I’ve even ventured all the way to SPI.
Why I ride: I started riding to get healthy; now I ride because it’s fun. Who knew kicking the car habit would be healthy for me, my wallet, and the environment?
Wrenching on the road? Yeah, we can do that.
