The Tour de Nez as we have known it for many years will now be known as the Tour de Nez-Vada. According to its website, the event isn't actually going away, it's changing and is tentatively scheduled for September, complete with many of the same events. Check the Tour de Nez-Vada website for additional details as they become available.

Meanwhile, the Truckee River Gran Fun-Do will take place on Saturday, June 22, 2013 (which is the traditional Tour de Nez date). This is a family-friendly biking event that includes three variations - a kids and family route, 30 mile route to the Verdi area, and a ride on old Highway 395 through Washoe Valley. Maps of each route are available on the Fun-Do website.

The starting point for all three Fun-Do rides will be at Washington Street and Riverside Avenue in Reno. Online registration is available. Proceeds will go to benefit the Tahoe-Pyramid Bikeway.
