The inaugural CrossReno is a USA Cycling sanctioned cyclocross event that is expected to attract more than 400 nationally and internationally ranked professional cyclists and elite amateur cyclists.
But it’s not just a race offering national ranking, it’s also a festival featuring live music, food trucks, a beer garden, a retail expo, and a free kids skills and riding clinic, hosted by the Reno-Tahoe Junior Cycling.
The event will benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows, which will also be hosting family-friendly activities throughout the day.

Besides the racing, there will be live music, vendors, food trucks, craft beer garden and children’s activities.  For the festival schedule, click here.

At 9:00pm, there will be an after-party at Edge Nightclub at the Peppermill Resort and Casino.

When Emmett isn't interviewing people in his too-loud, New Yorker style of brain-picking, he is pushing veggies on addictive personalities at a farmer's market, doing odd forms of calisthenics, researching how to live to be 300, or chipping away glacially at his first novel.He also enjoys hot sauce, comic books, and living outside the box as a militantly liberal social progressive (insert other synonym here) that still thinks guns are cool and plans lackadaisically for the apocalypse by learning survival skills (read: home economics). He also dabbles in martial arts and nude portrait drawing. Volunteer models are welcome.He thinks third person mini bios are fun. He wrote this.
