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 (http://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.
