Reno is getting some recognition in other cities for a 24-hour bike challenge called Scalley Cat. It’s inspiring tattoos, red-hot ass branding, milk baths, fireworks, cross-bearing, sexual acts, jumping over people on bikes, costumes, picking up trash, fake IDs, riding through casinos and hundreds of other shenanigans. What ties them together? Bikes. Participants start out in a park and get what is known as “the bible” which has all kinds of silly, gross, fun and wild things to do. To add to the mystery, participants prefer to remain anonymous. The event hit a 15-year anniversary this year. It happens the first weekend in April.
BIKE LIFE Radio is a show on KWNK where we talk to people about their bikes and lives. Presented by Ky Plaskon & the Truckee Meadows Bike Alliance. Ky has been commuting by bike to work for more than 30 years. He also worked in radio and TV for more than 20 years from Alaska to San Diego, Las Vegas, Reno and Sacramento. He wants to bring a lighter and funnier feel to bike discussions. For more information and to contribute to TMBA, follow the link below.
