RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- A collision between a biker and a car has happened on Neil Road and Peckham Lane. News 4 has a crew on the scene and we will have more information shortly.
We've done over 450 Streetfilms in nearly 6 years! We've been a lot of places. We've explored a lot of ideas. We've interviewed the top world experts in the transportation & livable streets realm.
We figured it was time to celebrate, so enjoy our sassy 2012 promo celebrating all that and more with this montage-arama featuring dozens of our Streetfilms of the past years. We'll be using this promo to kick off all future movie screenings, community events and powerpoint presentations. Enjoy.
Howdy!Apologies if you have already gotten this info from another source, but we want to make sure the word gets out. You are getting this message as someone who signed the online support form for the Reno Pump Track a few months ago. At the time, what seemed like a long way off, happened today; we started moving dirt on the site. The Mechanized equipment will work through the weekend, but we are in need of people on Monday to help with finish work and dialing in the track! Here's the info:TAMBA and the Poedunks are hosting a community build day on Monday, May 28 (Memorial Day) from 0900 until mid-afternoon. The location is Panther Valley Park, 650 Link Lane, 89506. There is plenty of room for parking around the corner on Western Drive. Volunteer to work all or part of the day, every little bit helps. Monday's work day will involve the finishing and dialing in of the multiple tracks and jump lines. Wear Long pants, gloves, and sturdy shoes (no sandals, Teva's, Crocs, etc,). We will be using hand tools and most will be provided. But in case we get 30+ people, please bring rakes, square shovels, or tampers if you have them(but write your name on them first). Also, feel free to bring your bikes and helmets for test rides. Don't forget the kids and their bikes! We need to dial in the kids track, too and I don't fit real well on a strider bike! Black Rock Bicycles will be providing a BBQ Lunch for all volunteers!The Grand Opening Party is tentatively scheduled for late afternoon on Friday, June 22.You can RSVP and invite your friends using this facebook event.Thanks for your support!
Tahoe bike trail closed for repairs
SOUTH LAKE TAHOE — One of Lake Tahoe’s most popular bicycle trails will be closed for up to a month because of maintenance and repair work. The U.S. Forest Service will close portions of the 3.2-mile Pope-Baldwin Bike Path on Tahoe’s south shore beginning this week. Crews will repair cracks, holes and bumps in the paved surface in an effort to improve safety and accessibility. Some South Lake Tahoe business owners told the Tahoe Daily Tribune that they don’t think the trail should be closed at a time of the year when so many people want to get out and ride. According to the Forest Service, the bike trail averages around 1,600 users per day.

Everyone,We are having a bike ride and photo shoot down 4th Street with the Reno News and Review for a cover article tomorrow, Wednesday May 2nd. I will be riding with my son Shoki, but I would really appreciate it if anyone else could come and be photogenic on their bicycles. I think it is very important to have more women demonstrating the cycling experience along 4th Street, and talking about their personal opinions for riding on 4th Street.Right now the RTC proposal does not include bicycle lanes or cycle tracks through downtown Reno next to the casinos, bus station or Reno Aces baseball field. The RNR article will discuss the barriers for commuters, families and tourists who want to get around Reno by bike.We will start out from the Gold 'n Silver Restaurant at 4th & Vine about 3pm, and make it down to Galletti before turning back. If you or anyone you know can ride with us on short notice, I would really appreciate it. Please give me a call on my cellphone, 232-0129, if you can make it.Thanks,Scott Hall
