I am considering moving to the Reno area and would like to hear from people that live there about options for both road and Mt Biking. At this point my main interest is in medium to fast group rides as well as interesting longer road routes. Probably no more racing for me at least not in the near future. Just looking at a map I am not seeing much without including some busy roads or riding through neighborhoods.
I am coming from the SF Bay Area and in particular ride the San Mateo Peninsula and around the Coast. We have a lot of rural rides with significant climbing options. Although cars are always around, it is possible plan routes that mostly traverse fairly quiet roads. I would like to find out about whether similar options exist close to Reno.
I have just started to pickup Mt Biking again so local trail ride options are of interest as well. I know Tahoe is not far but it would be nice to jump on my Mt Bike for a quick afternoon ride without having to involve a long car ride.
Any info or opinions on the available riding or actually just living in Reno would be welcome. Thanks!
