Soon after the opening of the Mustang-McCarran route, the Tahoe-Pyramid Bikeway was awarded top honors in the Coalition for Recreational Trails competition. The competition recognizes eight trail projects that best use federal recreational trail grants, which have been “the primary source of funding” for the bikeway, according to president Janet Phillips. Most of the grants came through the Nevada Division of State Parks.
Phillips said that in the past seven years, the bikeway has opened 32 miles of trail and more portions are in the works. She will attend an award ceremony in Washington, D.C., to accept the award.
