Officials from City of Reno, City of Sparks, and Washoe County met at the Washoe County Administration Building on Thursday, May 18 and pedaled in the Mayoral Challenge ride in celebration of National Bike Week. Shortly after a nutrition and hydration break at the Sparks Marina riders then went onto Diedrichsen Elementary School in Sparks as part of the Ride for Reading sponsored by Safe Routes to School. Riders picked up donated books and delivered them to the school for students to take home.
May is National Bike Month and Friday, May 19 is National Bike to Work Day. So hop on your bike and get out there!
Bicycling is fun, healthy, environmentally friendly and saves you money!
