Transforming Las Cruces into a great bicycle and pedestrian community

Velo Cruces

THE HUB COMMUNITY BIKE SHOP

The Hub will accept repairs by appointment only from 1—4 p.m. on Wednesdays and 9 a.m.—1 p.m. on Saturdays. Email velocruces@gmail.com or leave a voice message at 575.323.0833 to tell us your preferred appointment time. A Hub volunteer will contact you to confirm. Thank you for your understanding as we try to exit stay at home conditions.

There is a need in our community for free/low-cost bicycle repair services. Efforts to provide such services through semi-annual Ride Right/Ride Bright events and the efforts of altruistic individuals and organizations in the community have been unable to fully meet this need. Community bike shops are a proven model for meeting these needs and The Hub Community Bike Shop has been established with the goal of meeting this need in Las Cruces.

 

The Hub patrons will be able to:

  • Use bike shop facilities and tools to repair their bicycles allowing the patrons to spend more time bicycling;

  • Acquire basic bike repair skills; and

  • Observe and promote rules of the road and safety while traveling through our community as a pedestrian or bicyclist.

The Hub Used Bicycle Distribution Program has been established to provide bicycles at no cost to individuals who are experiencing homelessness/near homelessness or have qualified for the earn-a-bike program, which is currently being developed.
