RenoCross!

Well...I wasn't sure I'd get motivated to go to RenoCross, but it happened and it was a blast.  The energy at these events and the bikey people just make it fun!  Enjoy my horrible photo skills with a picture montage!

So much Bikey doings!


Hey.  I don't get as much time to do this as I'd like, and there is a ton of Bikey stuff that is happening or has happened.  So....I'm going to shotgun a few things.

Interbike is in Reno this week and will host CrossReno at Rancho San Rafael today .  You missed (or made it to) a great talk by Adventure Cycling director Jim Sayer.  There is a trail building seminar at Patagonia tonight at 7pm! 

So get out and do something bikey!

Reno Cross is at Rancho San Rafael today from noon until 9ish!
Trail Building Talk at Patagonia tonight!

Jim Sayer giving a great talk that made you want to plan your next tour today!

Patagonia was packed for the talk....over 100 people turned out!

Pigeon Head provided some excellent IPL!

Gear Hut (a new second hand gear store off of Wells Ave) was hanging out to encourage us recycle our used gear!

The Push tonight at the Pioneer for the Performing Arts Center!

PUSH: Cinematic Teaser from ThePushIsOn on Vimeo.


Grant Korgen is presenting his movie, "The Push" tonight at 7pm.  I got to know Grant a little bit (years ago) through whitewater kayaking.   He was a genuinely  great all around guy.  Then in 2010 while snowmobiling he literally broke himself in half.   He lives the true outdoor adventure lifestyle like few others.  Definitely worth the 20 bucks to see the show!

Inspiration. Empowerment. Connection. The power of bicycle travel. Come find all of these at a special regional gathering of people interested in cycling and bicycle travel hosted by Adventure Cycling Association at the Patagonia Outlet Reno on Monday, September 17 from 7:00 to 9:00 PM (program from 7:30 to 8:30 PM).

During the next year, Adventure Cycling staff will visit more than 40 cities across the United States. At gatherings in all of these cities, we’ll share three things: (1) news and stories on the joys and benefits of bicycle travel, as well as resources for how to travel by bike; (2) exciting new strategic directions for Adventure Cycling; and (3) an opportunity for you to provide ideas for how we can grow a larger and more connected bicycle travel community.

This gathering is open to Adventure Cycling members and non-members who have an interest in bicycle travel or just want to learn more.

Adventure Cycling’s Executive Director Jim Sayer will be on hand for the gathering, as well as other staff and volunteers. Enjoy refreshments and a chance to socialize with many other folks in your area who are interested in cycling and bike travel. Please join us and bring a friend!

Cyclist Killed in Battle Mountain by Hit and Run.

From Kolo 8 TV:

It still floors me that any human can do this to another person.  Hit someone with your car....know you did it (drunk or not) and leave someone dying on the side of the road rather than offer to help.  There should be a special place in hell for this type of behavior.

Midtown Bike Planning - Two way cycletrack on Center St.


Well if you missed the meeting....you missed a great example of bicycle activism!  We had a packed house for the RTC presentation of  Center Street / Sierra Street bike lane options and had an immense amount of positive comments during the public comment period.

Impressively, we also had three city council members in attendance (and support) of moving the project forward with construction by 2020.  While we can always count on David Bobzien and most often have Oscar Delgado in our corner, I was pleasantly surprised to see Neoma Jardon present and pulling for the project.  She sits on the RTC board as the city counsel representative and has often offered some push back on previous bicycle oriented projects.  Perhaps her time on the RTC board has shifted her opinions or she sees some unique value in having an option for bicycle connectivity to midtown from UNR (since the Virginia St. reboot will not add bike lanes).  Either way we want to welcome her to our side and show her it's worth the political capital!

Given the good nature of the meeting, a large group of old and new bicycle advocates ended the night with a bike ride down Virginia St. (taking the lane the entire way) to Cheney Ave. and a visit to Pinion for a celebratory adult beverage and further bikey discussions!  Next time we hope you'll be there to join us!
