This incredible event, a fundraiser for the Rotary Club of Reno Sunrise, is an organized road bike ride (not a race). We volunteered so we could be a part of it without having to actually get on bikes.
The ride is in three lengths: 10 miles, 50 miles and 150K (in honor of Nevada's 150th Year Sesquicentennial). It is a recreational, yet challenging, ride that showcases Northern Nevada with beautiful routes and scenic stops.
We were there at the finish line to sell merchandise.
Farmers, ranchers, food artisans, vintners, and brewers, contributed their time and resources. From homemade energy bars, created by local culinary programs, and local eggs at rest stops to grass-fed beef, local lamb, pork, along with free-range and organic chicken (which we helped serve at the post-ride barbecue) these riders were well cared for.
This was one of those days where the exhilaration far outweighed the exhaustion! We are so happy Bob and Jenny suggested this volunteer opportunity. Wow!
