The Reno Kiwanis Bike Program is near and dear to the hearts of everyone in Rotary and the Edible Pedal 100. They provide recycled bikes to local children, vets and homeless. They have had a recent setback – after they came back from their bike swap and the River Fest last weekend they arrived in the bike shop on Sunday afternoon to find that someone had broken in overnight and stolen over $3000 in tools, generators, and more.

It is with heavy and deeply saddened hearts that we say good bye to Tim Rowe. An avid cyclist and cycling advocate, Tim’s contribution to our cycling community are numerous and wide spread. He was a tremendous friend to the Edible Pedal 100® with his counsel and sage advice during our formative years. If you didn’t see him on the road, chances are you saw him staffing the Nevada Bicycle & Pedestrian booth at EP100 and various other cycling events. We will miss his positive attitude and ever present smile.
A celebration of Tim’s life will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, April 9th, 2017, at the Carson City Community Center. If you have photos of Tim, please bring copies to share with the family. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in Tim’s memory to: Alta Alpina Cycling Club, P.O. Box 2032, Minden, NV 89423; Nevada Area Council, Boy Scouts of America, 500 Double Eagle Court, Reno, NV 89521; or Douglas High School Music Boosters, 1670 Highway 88, Minden, NV 89423.
Happy trails and tail winds, Tim.
Your Reno Sunrise Rotary friends.
We are excited to add two new mileage routes to our traditional ride that you have enjoyed in the past. We have added a 35 mile route and a 74 mile route. The 35 mile route is a pleasant ride to the south end of Carson City and a turn around at Ross Gold Park. The 74 mile route takes you to the bottom of Kingsbury Grade and back to Bowers Mansion but no “thigh-burning” ride up to Lake Tahoe. Please join us for one of our 5 routes designed to meet your experience and training.
Edible Pedal 2017 tickets are now for sale on Eventbrite.
Our big news is that there is now five (5) different routes!
The route s for 2017 are:
- Challenging 150K-mile loop
- Inspiring 74-mile ride
- Respectable 50-mile route
- Cruising 32-mile ride
- Leisurely 10-mile ride
