ORANGE PEDAL CREW BLOG

Hello, Hola, Bonjour, Ciao Bike Enthusiasts, welcome to Orange Pedal Crew's Blog! This is where we will talk about local and global bike and coffee news.

Oslo, Norway proves that it is. In 2019 the city had zero pedestrian and cyclist deaths, due to Vision Zero, a 1997 concept where the goal would be to eliminate traffic fatalities and serious accidents. 

Vision Zero was conceived by the Swedish parliament based on the idea that “It can never be ethically acceptable that people are killed or seriously injured while moving within the road transport system.” It was federally funded and in 20 years it more than halved the fatality rate! American cities like New York City and L....

Being in a valley and so close to nature makes Reno an ideal place to mountain bike. You are never too far away from a bike trail, and great  trails at that!

Going from beginning to expert trails, we begin with

  1. West Stampede Road #886-018

This 4 mile trail is one of the easiest mountain biking, so it is ideal for beginners. It is flat and has no uneven surfaces.

  1. Commemorative Overland Emigrant Trail

This is an easy/intermediate trial in Truckee, with smoother paths and rougher areas, Commemorative is a good challe...

The Beginner Series

If you are a beginner biker and you haven’t gotten your bike equipment yet, here are a couple things that you’ll need to get started!

You should start with the best helmet. The best helmet would be one that fits your head. I'm so sorry, I'll be serious now. Just like with bikes there are different types of helmets, for example, there are road, commuter, mountain bike helmets; and they all serve a different purpose.

Mountain bike helmets have an L shape in order to protect your neck and give more coverage....

The Beginner Series

Some of you may be aware that the person writing this blog (me) would be categorized as a beginner biker, and if you are not aware, hello! The last time I rode a bike was when I was twelve and had just ran headlong into a stationary basketball hoop. So, I do not have much biking experience, which is why I wanted to blog about biking for beginnings. This way, if you are like me, and do not know much about biking or want to start biking, you can have a gander and maybe learn a thing or two!

First things fir...

I would really like to inspire our website visitors to join us on Meetup with this blog post. Meetup is a site where we post information on Orange Pedal Cycling events, for example, on October 20 we have a bike ride event. On the site you can say whether or not you would like to join it, and see more information about this ride and more! 

That being said, we would like to include more people in our events, and to that extent we have added more Orange Pedal events that include running and walking, so you don’t have to be a c...

Hello Orange Pedal Website visitors! I would like to share a fun little thing happening in the world right now concerning bikes and coffee (our two specialities!). 

So, Nespresso paired with a Swedish bike brand, Vélosophy, and together they created RE-CYCLE, a stylish bike made out of recycled aluminum Nespresso pods! They are hoping to show people what they can do with their recycling, and motivate people to recycle their Nespresso coffee capsules.

1,000 RE-CYCLE bikes will be sold starting August 12, and each will cost $1...
