TRUCKEE, Calif. (AP) — The opening of a new segment of the Tahoe-Pyramid Bikeway west of Reno means cycling enthusiasts are about two-thirds of the way to completing the dream that began 10 years ago to follow the Truckee River more than 100 miles from Lake Tahoe to its terminus at Pyramid Lake.

Recent construction of a replacement suspension bridge at Fleisch Dam just across the Nevada line into California added 3.5 miles to the bike trail and pushed the completion mark to 65 percent in terms of total combined segments.

Organizers tell the Sierra Sun they hope in another 10 years from now the riverside trail will stretch the entire 116 miles from Tahoe City to Truckee, along Interstate 80 through Reno and finally to the high desert lake on the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe reservation near Nixon, Nev.
