Adventure Cycling Bikepacking Ride on Saturday!

Well, I'm back from vacation and the bikey scene in Reno is rolling!  The tweed ride just wrapped up with an attendance of around 50 people and a there's a bike packing event on Saturday with a prep "packing" event on Friday night.  Both are hosted by Orange Pedal Cycling and the Reno Bike Project so you know they'll be great!  I believe the pre-packing event is Friday night at 7 pm and the ride leaves from the parking lot at 8:30 the next morning.

The trip will take you out to the canyon in the back of Lockwood (Largomarsino Canyon) which has a ton of Indian Rock Artwork and is beautiful to boot.  Aka....Lockwood isn't just a landfill if you were wondering.  So bring a bike....get some advice on how to pack it....and get out for a fall bike packing bonanza!

I think the one way mileage from the trail head is around 14 miles with 1700 feet of climbing.  A great trip with just enough work to make you feel like you earned that beer at the end of the day!
