Cycling enthusiasts are invited to meet and ride with Tour de France Champion Andy Schleck and cycling legends Jens Voigt and Frank Schleck at Homewood this Friday as a show of support for the Tahoe-Pyramid Bikeway and the Tour de Nez.
The internationally renowned athletes will be in Reno-Tahoe to relax and train for the USA Pro Cycling Challenge starting Aug. 19 in Aspen, Colo. In addition to a meet-and-greet in Reno on Thursday, the cyclists will be at the Homewood/West Shore Café parking lot on Friday at 9 a.m., where the public will receive an opportunity to ride with them for the first 20 miles of a training ride.
A donation of $25 for the ride and $100 for ride and photo opportunity is suggested and benefits the Tahoe-Pyramid Bikeway.
