We'll be doing an S24O bike trip (sub 24 hour overnight) departing from Wingfield Park in Reno and setting up camp at Davis Creek Park for the evening, followed by a return trip to Wingfield park the following day. It's about a 21 mile each way with between 1100-2000 feet of climbing depending on the route you select. We'll be offering two routes depending on your climbing prowess and your desire to avoid higher speed roadways.
Worried about gear, bike setup, the fact that you've never ridden 40+ miles in 24 hours time? Not a problem. We'll be having both blog posts and some actual in person / non-cyberspace meetings to show you the ropes.
So on to the details (or at least the ones that exist right now)...First up, the proposed dates are either the weekend of March 14th or March 28th (to be decided). Detail number two....
|Option 1. No really busy, high speed roads....but more climbing (e.g. elevation gain) to deal with and a tiny little gravel section (sorry...I couldn't help myself).|
|Option 2. Big wide roads (and wide shoulders) with more traffic at higher speeds....but significantly less climbing.|
Ok, hopefully that gets your mind spinning about the possibility of tagging along on this little adventure. I'll be posting soon on gear selection and bike configuration....so stay tuned if your interested!
