Ride With The Procrastinating Pedalers of Reno-Tahoe! We're Northern Nevada's largest group of bicycling enthusiasts!

Our Mission: The Procrastinating Pedalers of Reno’s Mission is to promote safe, non-competitive, recreational bicycle riding and healthy lifestyles in a fun, social atmosphere.

Procrastinating Pedalers primary goal for this Meetup Group site is to allow Procrastinating Pedalers Ride Leaders the ability to schedule rides, and for Members to see the schedule and plan ahead for it. The rides (Meetups) that are posted here, for the most part, are regularly occurring rides that typically happen each week. We will also post special event rides as well. Only designated Procrastinating Pedalers Ride Leaders have the ability to schedule Meetups on this site. This prevents an overload of extraneous rides, and reduces the level of e-mail notifications sent to the Membership.

As you begin to ride regularly with the Procrastinating Pedalers, you'll begin to become comfortably affiliated with a core group of riders that are close to your skill level. During the summer months, Procrastinating Pedalers usually hosts regular to semi-regular weekday rides on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday’s. A Sunday Meetup is scheduled year-round.

IMPORTANT: Be sure to check out the Ride Guide (https://www.meetup.com/Procrastinating-Pedalers-of-Reno-Tahoe/pages/Ride_Guide/), which will get you started in the right place. If you come out and the pace is too fast, feel free to ask for some training tips. We realize that your time is valuable to you and your cycling time is limited; choosing the correct ride for your fitness level is important and doing so will help ensure a positive group riding experience.

The Procrastinating Pedalers now welcome E-bikes on our rides. (Class 1,2 and 3). However, it is important to make sure that you, and the bike, are capable of safely doing the ride that you select. Review the ride description,the map/route sheet, or contact the ride host, for information about the ride.

Access to our Meetup site is free, but we encourage you to become a Procrastinating Pedalers member to take advantage of additional benefits such as: insurance coverage, discounts at participating bike shops, monthly club meetings, and social events.

Thursday Coffee House Ride C Rating

Perenn @ Rancharrah

The coffee ride this Thursday will usher-out the month of September by a visit to Perenn Bakery - the new south Reno edition. Thanks for the heads-up from folks who attended the Rattlesnake ride last week! This new place is a far cry from Perenn's humble beginnings in Midtown: it’s a lot larger, and along with the usual suspects such as espresso and a selection of goodies, they also have pretty nice breakfast and lunch menus. Large outside patio. You might consider heading there early for breakfast - looks yummy! It’s predicted to be pretty cool by Thursday, so dress warm!

Getting there is a bit tricky. If driving, you have to head south on Kietzke Ln, then turn right on Talbot (might be called Rancharrah?) just before the traffic circle that sends you to 395, Neil Rd, or Del Monte. At the traffic circle, go left (3rd exit) and then proceed all the way south to the trees. On a bike you might be able to sneak through all the construction by heading south on Talbot from McCarran. Once again, the name of the street probably changes.

Everyone must sign the sign-up sheet no later than 8:55 am. Check posting two hours before ride time for weather-related and other changes. Helmets are required and bikes must be in good working order. Be prepared with a spare tube and pump/CO2. For everyone's safety, we do not allow ear buds, headphones, music or Class 2E-Bikes (bicycles with a motor that propels the bicycle without pedal assistance) during the ride.

Please confirm your ability to do this ride according to the ride ratings. Review the map/route sheet if provided and the ride rating as stated in the Ride Rating Sheet - (http://www.pedalers.org/RideRatingSheet2018.pdf. If you have questions contact the ride host. You may also refer to our Ride Etiquette Sheet. http://www.pedalers.org/PP_Group_Ride_Etiquette.pdf

Membership applications are available at the start of the ride if you want to join the Club. You may also contact Anna Bell ([masked]) to verify your membership status.

Tour de Sparks

Sparks Marina Park

Join us this Saturday for the first “Tour de Spanish Springs”. While this ride is intended primarly for B riders, C’s are welcome with the knowledge that the route includes over 2000 ft of climbing in the first half of the ride. The ride will start at the Sparks Marina public parking lot located on Howard Dr just South of E Lincoln Way. As there are many turns on this route, you are strongly encouraged to download directions to your bike computer. An alternative is to print out the route sheet and carry it with you on the ride. The hills can be challenging, but the views from the top are wonderful on a clear day. After finishing with the hills, we will take a flat loop around the Red Hawk golf course and steer a course back to the Marina. We will be riding in a primarly residential area with limited facilities so be sure to bring ample water.

Arrowcreek As You've Never Seen It

RC Willey

Please join us for an exploration of little known roads in Arrowcreek and Southeast Reno. We start at RC Willey's parking lot and begin with some roads that until recently have not been visible on RidewithGPS maps, they wind up the hills to the East of RC Willey's. Wild horses are frequent companions here. We then take some backroads up to Arrowcreek and ride some loops almost never ridden by taking advantage of several fire roads (paved). I apologize in advance for the fact that we will need to pass around a few fire gates, but the roads are worth it. We'll take a break about half way through the ride at a little park on Harbottle Drive. The peak of the ride occurs at mile 18 and from there we enjoy downhills and flats for the rest of the ride with the exception of a spin over Alexander Lake road to finish down the southeast connector and Veterans Blvd.
