Muscle Powered is asking that you attend the ceremony to show your support for trails in Carson City. Many of us will be riding our bikes to the ceremony. If you’d like to ride with us, let me know!
The ceremony is at the southernmost bridge at 9:00 AM. You can either drive or ride to Buzzy’s Ranch Road. From the road, there is access the Mexican Ditch Trail between addresses 1561 and 1631. Ride or walk south along the Mexican Ditch Trail about 800 feet, beyond the horse corrals to the new bridge.
In addition to the ceremony, Fleet Feet Sports will be hosting a 5k and 1-mile walk/kid’s run. More information can be found on the Fleet Feet Sports website.
