[ARCHIVED] Las Cruces Mayor Plans Bicycle Ride for National Bike Month

Residents with bicycles are welcomed to join Las Cruces Mayor Ken Miyagishima at 10 a.m. Saturday, May 25 for the 2019 Mayor’s Annual Bike Ride event commemorating National Bike Month. Initiated by the League of American Bicyclists in 1956, National Bike Month creates awareness of bicycling as an American pastime.

The event starts and ends at City Hall, 700 N. Main St., and the route is almost five miles.

“I’m looking forward to riding this year,” Miyagishima said. “Bicycling is a great activity and I’m very proud of our community’s status with the League of American Bicyclists that awarded Las Cruces Bronze level recognition as a Bicycle Friendly Community.”

The route will take place in the Mesquite and Alameda historic districts. The map for the route is located online at

“It’s an easy, low-speed, family friendly ride around Downtown Las Cruces through both historic neighborhoods,” explained George Pearson, local bicycle advocate.

The ride is on city streets and is not recommended for children younger than 12 years of age unless they are in a trailer, tandem, or trail-a-bike. Helmets are required for all riders. Pearson is also chairman of the Mesilla Valley Metropolitan Planning Organization’s (MPO) Bicycle Pedestrian Facilities Advisory Committee. Pearson is also a board member of the local bicycle advocacy group Velo Cruces, and is a co-sponsor of the event. For more information, email Pearson at
