2011 Bike to Work / School Week – Get Involved!

2011 National Bike to Work week is May 16-20th!

There are lots of local ways to participate in this ‘go green’ initiative. Bike to Work / School Week is all about awareness and health. In Northern Nevada we have several local sponsors and there are prizes being offered for joining in the fun!
Bike to Work/ School Week is a healthy and cheap alternative to driving. Depending on your commute, this could be a change that can become a daily routine! Even better, get the kids involved in biking to school by teaching them the basics in safety and setting a healthy pace.

First Rest Stop for the Ride!

Edible Pedal 100 is excited to announce that we just secured our first rest stop for the ride. Trimmer Outpost is a beautiful facility in historic Genoa, Nev., nestled at the base of the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada in captivating Carson Valley. The restored late-1800s house and barn, large yard, and small arena is perfect for events such as ours! Riders will stop off for food + drink and can lounge on the grassy knoll. While there, be sure to check out the sweet shop filled with Nevada Made products.
