Muscle Powered Fact: Muscle Powered formed soon after the City hosted a public meeting at the Carson City Library to revise the City’s bicycle plan. Our founding members realized there was a good chance that a new bicycle plan would likely sit on a shelf and never be implemented. We’re fortunate that several individuals decided to take action. The first Muscle Powered meeting was held on June 2nd, 1998.

A big thanks to our founding members:
Anne Macquarie, Jim Crompton, Virginia Orcutt, Sue Newberry, Bruce Mackey, Tom Whitehead, Jean Wagner, Walt Wagner, Ed Skudlarek, Kelly Clark, and Penny Fairfield.

Commuter Tip: A clean drivetrain is a happy drivetrain. Keeping your drivetrain clean will reduce the wear on your chainrings, cogs and chain. Keeping your chain clean will also keep you from getting filthy when performing a roadside repair.

Please share your cycling tips with us by leaving a comment below.
