We ask that all bicyclists follow the rules of the road and that all participants wear helmets.

We could not ask for better weather for our October ride.

Blue skies and warmed by the sun I headed down the Trivis bike lane for the first time. It was a great experience to be riding comfortably on the rode with other commuters. Motorist seemed less confused as to why I was on the road and not up on the multi-path that runs alongside of it. Zach caught up to me (well actually passed me as I am slow) and we headed down University to see who else was particpating in the Visibility Ride.

We met Tammy Schurr and Geaorge Pearson, had a cup of java and Cheryl Fallstead came by to take some photos for us.

Thanks also to the Talavera group, Jean, Dave and Melody for riding today

The Share the Road Las Cruces (STRLC) Visibility Rides were rolled out in December 2008 as a monthly event to support the Share the Road Las Cruces Educational Campaign. The ride is a real-life, real-time demonstration of how bicyclists can safely ride with traffic. Additionally, it has begun to raise awareness among motorists of the presence of cyclists, of motorists' ability to safely share the road with cyclists, and of how cyclists behave while riding among vehicles while following traffic laws.
