Wed LC Light Cycle Idlewild to Patagonia No Ride Share

Idlewild Park TH (09:30 AM)

Same as Above (11:30 AM)
13.5, 11.5
From central Reno, very easy paced (11mph riding) super scenic, close to river, casual fun ride. Several stops. Shorter option is about 11.5 miles, or full ride is about 13.5 miles. No hills, no traffic lights. Riding 50% on bike paths, 50% on side streets or on roads with a bike lane. If you enjoy the rumble of bike tires crossing wooden decked trail bridges, you will LOVE this ride. Route: From Idlewild Park, follow the Tahoe Pyramid bikeway west through Mayberry Park, loop around the Patagonia building, and return. Optional miles go past Reno High, circle down Riverside Drive and just for fun loop into Wingfield Park. Click link to route on my Wikiloc page: Wikiloc | OLLI Idlewild Park -Patagonia Trail All bikes welcome, including E-bikes. We start on the main drag of Idlewild Park in the middle near the Rose Garden/Totem Head. Shady parking and good restrooms are open. To sign up, scroll all the way down to the bottom of this page, down below the map, click the greenish “click here to register” button. Didn’t register, just show up at the start and I will sign you in then! Easy! Helmets required. Other suggestions: pinch your bike tires the day before. Add sunscreen, bright clothing, water bottle, and for me a pre ride Advil.
