The Edible Pedal 100 is a fun-oriented cycling event featuring several rides of varying distances (ten to 100 miles). The event is sponsored by the Reno Sunrise Rotary Club to benefit numerous northern Nevada non-profit organizations and groups.
Choose from three fully supported courses. Families with young children and cyclists seeking a taste of an organized ride will enjoy the leisurely 10-mile route through picturesque Washoe Valley. Those interested in a longer, more challenging ride will like the 50-mile course that features scenic country roads through rustic towns. Serious roadies ready for a solid challenge will be thrilled with the 100-mile ride, which features a lung-searing, thigh-burning climb up Kingsbury Grade from Carson Valley to Lake Tahoe. Ride stops include historic Carson City, Genoa and Gardnerville.
Participants will savor mouthwatering local food and drink. Local farmers, ranchers, vintners, brewers, bakers and other food artisans contribute to the event.
Beneficiaries of this fundraiser event include Rotary Youth Exchange, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, Rotary Middle School Leadership Program. We’ve awarded scholarships to Washoe County AACT (Academy of Art, Careers and Technology), Hug High School, Carson City High School, and Douglas High School. We support the Rotary high school speech and music contests and Virginia Palmer Elementary School. Additionally we’ve donated to Reno Bike Project, Tahoe Pyramid Bikeway, Lake Tahoe Backcountry Bike Patrol, and Washoe Amateur Radio Emergency Service.
Summer is a great time to enjoy the outdoors and celebrate the unique power of the bicycle and the many reasons we ride. No matter what type of cycling you enjoy, there’s something for everyone at this event.
