Short notice to be "famous" by bicycle!

5.4 miles round trip might make you RNR famous!

Ok, here's your chance to make the RNR (Reno News and Review) as a bicycle rock star.  We're talking potential for a cover shot here!  The RNR and Reno Bike Project will be touring the 4th Street corridor starting from the Gold 'n Silver Restaurant (4th and Vine) at 3pm.  They will ride 4th Street out to Galletti Way before doing a U-turn and returning to downtown Reno.  All cyclists and families are welcome. 

Here's the official write up from Scott Hall (of Reno Bike Project and the Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee).


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.
