Here’s the latest on Saturday’s (9/19/09) Freeway Ride:
It’s great if you can ride your bike to the event, but if you need to haul all the family bikes down, parking will be available in the east parking lot of the Gold Dust West. The Free Bike Safety Check will be setup at the freeway on-ramp at HWY50.
Fleet Feet will get their run started around 8:00AM, and once they’re underway, bikes and walkers will be allowed to ride free for the next few hours. There will be people stationed at the 5th Street bike path exit. They will have Carson City bike route maps and possibly even water for thirsty riders.
I got 3 or 4 volunteers to help out with the Bike Safety inspection. Feel free to join us! I’ll be down there around 7AM helping setup.
The Carson City Soroptimist Club Rummage Sale is this Saturday (9/19), from 8 am to 2 pm, at 2319 N. Carson Street (right behind the Denny’s restaurant). Apparently they have some NEW cycling clothes for cheap!
Club member Patricia says, “we have just received some brand new bike shorts and tops as a donation for our upcoming Razzle Dazzle Rummage Sale this Saturday morning. I’m thinking that the chances of cyclists dropping by our venue is slim so thought I would contact you to see if there is a way to let your cycling friends know. There are about 11 various items, so there’s not that much. But what there is happens to be brand new, with tags. I brought a few home last night so I’d know how to describe them to you. Here is a pair of size large, solid black, Puma brand shorts with a padded butt. And a size XSmall bright yellow and white Puma top. And a black, grey and blue Puma top size Medium. There were a few of the yellow and black ones I remember seeing in the box.”
