Gran Fun-Do bicycle ride around Reno set for June 23

Ride around Reno, and play a little poker, too, at the Gran Fun-Do bicycle race June 23 around Reno. Online registration runs through June 20.

The event is sponsored by the Tour de Nez bike race, now in its 20th year and set for July 27-29.

The Gran Fun-Do will have three routes, each with a different mileage, skill level and festivities. Two of the routes include a card game in which cyclists will pick up their cards at refreshment stops along the routes. All hands will be played at 3 p.m. June 23 at Idlewild Park in Reno.

Here are the routes:

  • Long route (61.5 miles), in which 7-card stud poker will be played
  • ½ metric route (25.46 miles), in which 3-card 21 hand will be played
  • Family fun ride (8.6 miles)

The Gran Fun-Do is a fundraiser for the Tour de Nez’s outreach efforts and projects, along with the Tahoe-Pyramid Bikeway.
