Bicycle Advocacy

We never shy away from the fact we love our community. For 25 years and counting, our mission has not deviated from getting more of El Paso on bikes. Whatever your goal - to get faster, make friends, get healthier - we work hard day in day out to pave the way for you to get out and crush it on two wheels. Not only does our shop provide a landing spot for you to get the latest gear, connect with fellow like minded bike enthusiasts, but also lends a hand in co-leadership with local organizations and governments to make El Paso better for cycling, better for all to enjoy by bike.

It's more than just a sport. It's a lifstyle.

Dedicated to making the community of El Paso safer for both cyclists and pedestrians, Crazy Cat Cyclery proudly stands behind VELOPASO in an on-going campaign to bring awareness and education to our community. We encourage all cyclists and residents of El Paso County to reach out to their state and federal representatives and demand an infrastructure that is safe for all citizens. We would also like to ask all cyclists to support the following advocacy groups with your time, financial support, and membership.

The League of American Bicyclists

For generations past and to come, THE LEAGUE represents bicyclists in the movement to create
 safer roads, stronger communities, and a bicycle-friendly America. Through information, advocacy and promotion, we work to celebrate and preserve the freedom cycling brings to our members everywhere.

Bikes Belong

Bikes Belong is sponsored by the U.S. bicycle industry with the goal of putting more people on bicycles more often. We have nearly 400 members—bicycle suppliers and retailers combining resources to improve bicycling in America. Based in Boulder, Colorado, we have 38 professional staff (including the Safe Routes to School National Partnership team), 20 volunteer directors, and a $7.5 million annual operating budget.

IMBA-International Mountain Bicycling Association

Since 1988, IMBA has been bringing out the best in mountain biking by encouraging low-impact riding, volunteer trailwork participation, cooperation among different trail user groups, grassroots advocacy and innovative trail management solutions. IMBA’s staff, chapters, clubs and members work to benefit the entire mountain bike community.


PeopleForBikes is dedicated to channeling that passion to improve the future of bicycling. Our goal is to gather a million names of support, to speak with one, powerful voice—to make bicycling safer, more convenient and appealing for everyone.


The mission of Velo Paso Bicycle-Pedestrian Coalition is to make bicycling and walking safe and accessible for everyone in the Paso del Norte region through education and outreach. Brought together by 2013 El Paso Bike Month, we are a group of avid cyclists from across the Paso del Norte region who want to improve conditions for bicyclists and pedestrians in our community. Though we come from many different fields and occupations, we share one thing in common: a desire to give a voice to the voiceless and to create alternative transportation options that will make our region the envy of the world. We are Velo Paso
