SAFETY

This event is a ride not a race. Ride safely, be courteous, and obey all traffic laws. Please ride single file on all roads and stop at all stop signs.

NV Revised Safety Statutes for Bikes.

All riders must wear an ANSI or Snell approved helmet at all times.

NO HELMET – NO RIDE.

 

PARKING

Please watch for the University of Nevada ROTC squad, with their stellar assistance with traffic and parking, and slow down  – a lot – when you start to see the road cones – as the entrance to Bower’s Mansion comes up fast. They will direct traffic so we can maximize parking. In addition to the Bowers Mansion parking lots, parking will be available at the Franktown Meadows Equestrian Facility

Even with the generous use of Franktown Meadows parking, we ask that you carpool where possible-it’s just good for the planet! If you’re coming from Reno, there is ample parking on the south end of town at the Summit Mall, Wal-Mart on Damonte or Raley’s on the Mt. Rose Hwy.
