Angelica Rubio will be riding her bicycle from Las Cruces to Santa Fe over the course of the next week. She will be stopping along the way for meetings with fellow lawmakers and community leaders.

The Las Cruces Democrat is starting her trip Saturday. She hopes that by cycling to the capital city she can encourage a greater sense of connection between southern New Mexico and the legislative process.

One of Rubio's priorities will be establishing an Outdoor Equity Fund, which could be tapped to provide funding to disadvantaged communities for outdoor activity programs.

Rubio expects to arrive in Santa Fe on Jan. 12. She'll be documenting her journey on social media .
