Rest up on Saturday, because there’s a lot going on this Sunday! Whether you’re into slow urban cruising around the streets of Reno and Sparks, or mountain biking the High Sierra, you’ll find plenty to do this weekend.
Reno’s famous cruiser ride is back again, the Gonads-n-Strife Fall Poker Run. From the Gonads-n-Strife website, “Don’t be fooled by knockoffs, this is the original gonads-n-strife bike club bicycle poker run you’ve come to know and love, with high hand winning the one and only New Belgium Fat Tire Cruiser! This Fall we promise even more great raffle prizes and as usual a fantastic fun filled day of cycling! See you there!” More on the G&S website HERE.
