Showing their continued support of Muscle Powered’s efforts to increase livability in Carson City, Mayor Bob Crowell, and Carson City Supervisor’s Karen Abowd, Shelly Aldean and Molly Walt joined members of Muscle Powered on a ride around the west-side of Carson to promote Bike Month and the Carson City Corporate Challenge.

We experienced a wide range of tandems at this event.  Bill Story, State Bicycle & Pedestrian Coordinator for NDOT, brought his road tandem (which can be expanded to a triple, quad, and even a quint, depending on how many family members are going for a ride that day) and pedaled Mayor Bob on the loop.

Supervisor Shelly Aldean climbed on the back of my mountain bike tandem for the road ride.  I offered to take her offroad on the Flume Trail this summer and she replied with  an enthusiastic HELL NO! Actually she said she would like to do that.  Maybe we can arrange for a BOS Flume ride in late August.

Supervisor Karen Abowd was the stoker on a comfortable cruiser-ish tandem piloted by Muscle Powered president and Bike Carson administrator Jeff Moser.  Karen and Jeff were one of two tandem teams that looked like they could ride all day, the other team being Molly and Dave.

Dave Simpson chauffeured Supervisor Molly Walt around on his recently acquired recumbent tandem (Dave is the man who is responsible for the trails in Centennial Park,  and is the person who inspired me to build trails).  Molly was very pleasant during the ride but seemed to be preoccupied with the entertainment system which comes with the recumbent’s deluxe package.

Also along for the ride was Parks & Recreation Commission Chairman Steve Lasco, Lumos & Associates’ Chas Macquarie, Denis Coyne from Bike Habitat,  Jenny Scanland from Nevada State Parks, and Muscle Powered walk leader Donna Inversin.

Judging by their smiles I think everyone had a lot of fun.
