We have been enjoying a wild and crazy events season and another great one is just around the corner! The Hot August Bikes Group Ride is coming up this Saturday at 5:30pm starting at RBP. Watch this VIDEO for more information!
But here’s the skinny:
What: it’s a GROUP RIDE!!! What’s that, you might ask? Well, it’s when a large fun group of funky people on bikes get together and take a nice cruisin’ ride around downtown Reno.
Where: Meet in front of the Reno Bike Project’s pink building 541 E. 4th Street
Time: Meet at 5:30, ride starts around 6
Will it be safe? YES! It will be SO safe because the kind and friendly Reno Police Department will be escorting this ride around downtown! If you’re usually wary to ride your bike, this is a great opportunity for you to test the waters of urban riding because the RPD will help control traffic for us during this ride. This is an extremely family friendly event so we hope to see kids on kids bikes and kids in kids trailers riding along.
I heard something about ice cream? Is it true? YES! There will be an ice cream social after this event so come and satisfy your sweet tooth!We Heart Photos! Thursday, May 3rd, 2012
