Edible Pedal 100 is back September 15

By  | 

RENO, NV (KOLO) The Edible Pedal 100 is an event sponsored by the Reno Sunrise Rotary Club to benefit numerous local non-profit organizations and groups. The event is a fun-oriented ride to enjoy the northern Nevada outdoors with multiple food/rest stops. The ride varies from a casual 10 miles to a challenging 150-kilometer.

Early bird registration ends July 15.

Whether you bike to work or school; pump those pedals to preserve your health or the environment; or simply to explore your community, National Bike Month is an opportunity to celebrate the unique power of the bicycle and the many reasons we ride.

Some of the beneficiaries of the ride are:

Rotary Youth Exchange, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, Rotary Middle School Leadership Program. Rotary has awarded scholarships to Washoe County AACT (Academy of Art, Careers and Technology), Hug High School, Carson City High School, Douglas High School and the UNR chapter of Sigma Nu. Rotary supports the Rotary high school speech and music contests and Virginia Palmer Elementary School, and has donated to Reno Bike Project, Tahoe Pyramid Bikeway, Lake Tahoe Backcountry Bike Patrol and Washoe Amateur Radio Emergency Service.
