Ride For Reading 2019

Once again, we are calling all cyclists to join us in bringing the joys of reading and riding to the next generation of local riders and leaders!

On May 16, we will need cyclist volunteers to show up at the Sparks City Hall to start a leisurely two mile ride that will include picking up books from Ardmore Park and delivering them to Kate Smith Elementary School.

Road bikes, mountain bikes, fat bikes, cruisers, recumbents, and all other bikes are encouraged!

New, experienced, old, young, and all manner of riders are encouraged!

Bring your panniers, your back packs, your trailers, or any other method of transporting things so we can get all the donated books from the park to the school.

Pedego Reno Opens, Ready to Charge into Bike Month 2019

Pedego Reno Opens, Ready to Charge into Bike Month 2019

If you’re thinking about getting into the electric bike game, it can be a little overwhelming. There are so many brands getting into the market. There are So many questions to ask:

  • How does pedal assist work?
  • How big of a battery do I need?
  • How far will the bike go on a charge?
  • Are electric bikes heavy?
  • Will people make fun of me for adopting an awesome new technology that will increase my likelihood of participating in a non-passenger vehicle mode of travel?

The folks over at Pedego Reno have you covered! They’ve got a wide range of bikes (cruisers, fat bikes, tandems, folding, trikes, and more!) for you to check out in person. Their staff are trained up on the technology and the components to help get you in the know. Not ready to shell out for an e-bike of your own? They do rentals, so you can give one a try for an hour or two and see what you think.
