City unveils new bike and ride plaza

LAREDO, Texas (KGNS) - The City of Laredo is continuing its efforts to make parts of town bicycle friendly with the opening of its new bike and ride plaza.

Cyclists in District Three will now have a safe place to park their bikes while they ride the bus.

City officials say people often want to ride their bikes to the bus stops to catch a bus but they did not have anywhere to leave their bikes.

With the new bike plaza, bicycle enthusiasts can now leave their bicycles in a secure and well-lit area while they rid the bus.

The bike plaza is located at the corner of Market and Loring Street.
