I hope everyone had a great time at Bike Habitat’s 6 Annual Tour of Carson! Here’s what Muscle Powered Board member Kelly Clark had to say about the ride:
Great Tour de Carson today, light rain did not seem to be a problem for the 60 or so riders who came out. I enjoyed it, especially the clean after rain smell. Awesome food, Denis Coyne and Bike Habitat folks did a great job putting it all together. A couple of renewals and new memberships came in at sign up–that is always good!
May 6 — BIKE MOVIE @ Sassafras
Oops! Due to a slight scheduling snafu on our part the bike movie that one reviewer described as, “riveting as “Plan 9 From Outer Space” and as moving as “Eraserhead”, The Flying Scottsman will be postponed to another night (TBD). But that doesn’t mean you can’t jump on your bike and pedal down to Sassafras and watch “Into the Wild” with old and new friends. So come on down and see if you can spot a bike in the movie.
Where: Sassafras Eclectic Food Joint, 318 N. Carson St. When: 6:30 pm
May 7 — Celebrity RIDE
What started out as one supervisor riding a tandem around town with a bike advocate has grown into a large ride with elected officials, city staff, and other notables. This easy 1-hour loop builds advocacy and showcases Carson City’s bikeability.
Where: Telegraph Square When: 10:00 am. Please arrive early for a brief safety talk.
