Starting Location: Indian Head. Directions: From the junction of I-80 and I-580/US-395 in Reno, take I-80 West to Exit #12 (Keystone Ave). Turn left onto Keystone (go under I-80).

Facilities: Unknown

Description: 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:
