Velo Cruces

Transforming Las Cruces into a great bicycle and pedestrian community

Earn A Bike Program

The Velo Cruces Earn A Bike program is a multi-agency mentoring program in which students can simultaneously gain literacy skills while building a bicycle that they take home with them. The Earn A Bike program will be developed as The Hub Community Bike Shop becomes established.

The Earn A Bike program is:

  • A hands-on program
  • An opportunity for students to develop skills
  • For middle school students
  • A 12-week non-school-hour program
  • A way for youth to earn their own bicycle


Cyclists fare best when they act and are treated as drivers of vehicles.
