Did you know 2014 is Nevada’s Sesquicentennial, the 150th anniversary of Nevada’s admission to the Union? By executive order of Governor Brian Sandoval, plans for the yearlong celebration include official community based and signature Nevada 150 (www.nevada150.org) events that showcase the unique contribution of Nevada’s culture and history.
We’re thrilled to announce that the Edible Pedal 100® has been selected as one of the official Nevada 150 (www.nevada150.org) events. Thank you to Governor Sandoval, Lt. Governor Krolicki and the entire Nevada 150 Committee for allowing us to be a part of the celebration.
I’m sure you would agree that a 150 celebration calls for a 150 route. In honor of Nevada’s 150th, the 100 mile route will be a 150K (don’t worry, that’s only 93.2 miles). In honor of Nevada’s 150th We’re working on the route changes and will update the map as soon as we decide which miles to eliminate. The 10 and 50-mile options will be the same.
These are challenging routes, but that’s ok because Rotary is all about challenges. (Rotary set out to eradicate polio worldwide and we’re almost there.)
For those who are riding with us for the first time, we know you’ll be challenged and successful. There will be plenty of refueling and hydration options, and look for our moto marshals and SAG vehicles. Don’t worry: if you need some help along the way, we’ll be there!
