Big Bikeway, Little Bridge. Supporters of the Tahoe Pyramid Bikeway project recently partnered with the Truckee Meadows Water Authority to complete a new Fleish Bridge and connect about 3.5 miles of the Bikeway to Verdi. You can bike or hike to the new section from Crystal Peak Park in Verdi and Winnemucca Ranch Road. Although part of the trail is along the Truckee River, there are some steep hills to climb. It is so worth the effort. The trail, which also serves as a utility road for TMWA, is beautiful. The project is a major hurdle in the plan to create a bike trail from Lake Tahoe to Pyramid Lake. It is the only bridge that needed to be completed for the project and connects Nevada to California. Funding for the bridge was a combination of public and private donations, including TMWA, State Question One, Recreation Trails Program in Nevada, Fred Ilfred, and Phil and Jennifer Satre and Bikeway volunteers.
The City of Reno is very supportive of the Bikeway project. The City partnered with the Bikeway group to build a path in Verdi, so bikers don't have to travel on I-80. The City also repaired part of the path in Reno behind the National Automobile Museum with funds donated by the Tahoe Pyramid Bikeway.
