Edible Pedal 100 is Reno-Tahoe’s newest fundraising bike ride celebrating the scenic beauty and culinary bounty of the region. Riders will feast on local fare as they pedal their way through forests, meadows, farmland, quaint towns and the jewel of the Sierra: Lake Tahoe. The ride will take place on Sunday, Sept. 18, beginning at the historic Bowers Mansion in Washoe Valley, Nev., (15 miles south of Reno), and offers riders a 10-, 50- or 100-mile routes.

While cyclists gobble up the beautiful landscape, they’ll also enjoy outstanding local fare proven to satisfy even the most discriminating palate. Partner edible Reno-Tahoe magazine, which celebrates and supports the local food community, has gathered the best local farmers, ranchers, vintners, brewers, bakers, and other food artisans to showcase their culinary works of art throughout the event.

The charitable ride includes all support and food and is $35 for the 10-mile route, $55 for the 50-mile route, and $65 for the 100-mile route. There’s also a commemorative bike jersey available for purchase.

Money raised will support local and international children’s programs, including Urban Roots, a Reno garden classroom program that assists Washoe County public and private schools in creating and maintaining edible school gardens. Other beneficiaries are the Virginia Palmer Elementary School in Reno, Rotary Youth Exchange and Rotary Youth Leadership Awards.
