If you’re looking for events for Truckee Cyclists, take note: in addition to all the trails and rides you carve out on your own, there are two great events coming up very soon. The Tahoe Sierra Century is an all-day event taking place on Saturday, September 12, 2015, and the Edible Pedal 100®, though slightly out of our area, takes place on Sunday, September 20, 2015. Following are a few more details for you.
The Sierra Century takes place at the Village at Squaw Valley, Olympic Valley. Tickets run between $55 and $70 per person (see this website for tickets and additional information, especially if you’d like to take advantage of early bird or group rates). Doors fly open at 6:30 a.m. the day of. Depending on which ride you choose – each one is a Miles for Music ride – you’ll need to bring your enthusiasm and energy reserves. There are 30, 60, and 100-mile routes. Support is available all along the way, as will be great food and music. This ride begins and ends at the Village. Again, a lot more details about the event, lunch or after-ride dinner specials, special services, is available at the site.
Edible Pedal 100
The Edible Pedal 100® on September 20, 2015 also kicks off at 6:30 a.m. It takes place at Bowers Mansion Regional Park, in Washoe Valley, Nevada. If you love to ride – distances of 10, 50, or even 100 miles – and to help out charitable causes, this is a ride for you. Benefits go to the Rotary Club of Reno Sunrise. This century bike ride will include rest stops every 15-20 miles. The 100-mile ride will start first, and the next two rides will be staggered in terms of start times. An after-ride BBQ, featuring locally sourced food, will await all hungry cyclists. To find out the details, you can phone Mark Kattelman at (775) 393-9158, send him an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit the ride’s main website. Prices vary from $35 to $85 based on the length of ride and date you sign up.
