Whoa! The weather may be cooling down but things are heating up here around Reno! Did you see Pineapple Pedicabs working all over downtown in September? We were busy bees working every event, and there were a bunch of them!
When we weren't helping passengers get to and from events, we were conducting tours! The Biggest Little Downtown Reno Tour was a very popular choice last month! To keep the party going, we are offering $10 off of any of our tours this fall! Book today and use discount code Fall2021to get all the fun for less the funds!
🎈Great Reno Balloon Race 🎈
Wooohoooo! Hot Air Balloons and mini donuts! These are a few of our favorite things! It was so great to have the Great Reno Balloon Race back this year to celebrate their 40th year! WHOA! We still didn't make it up in a balloon, fingers crossed for next year!
💃Fiesta on Wells💃
One of the best events we attended in September was the Fiesta on Wells, hosted by Latino Arts and Culture Reno in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month. Oh my gosh! This was our first time at this event and we were absolutely blown away! It was AMAZING! So much culture, music, dancing, and great food! A fabulous time was had by all, and do I mean all! I think all of Reno was there! Here is a little clip of some of the greatness! I cannot wait for this event next year!
There is a new TV show that just came out called, Love, Reno, and guess who got featured in an episode?! That's right. Your very own favorite pedicab fleet. Pineapple Pedicabs! Check it out to see our head Pineapple Jaime and our fabulous pedicab driver and magical mechanic, Dave! It was so much fun to have passengers Connie and Dave (yes another Dave) get the full Pineapple Pedicab experience in Downtown Reno. They loved it!
🎧Bike Life Radio🎧
All of our cyclist friends should check out this new podcast by Kyril Plaskon from Truckee Meadows Bike Alliance for his radio show, Bike Life Radio. Check it out here! Lots of fun episodes 🤩SPOILER ALERT: you might be hearing from some Pineapples in the upcoming months...🤩
🐕Supporting Shelter Dogs🐕
Can we get real for a minute? Some of you may not realize that kill shelters still exist in the United States. Shelters are overcrowded so even when dogs have been tested and found to be adaptable, good with other pets, and great with kids, they still end up on the kill list. And that has to stop.
This is a very important cause for us and we've decided to step up to the plate and do something about it. You might have heard me talk about this on the Renoites podcast but we are going a step further now.
We have added a Home A Dog link to our website that will take you to a site that has photos of some of the dogs that are scheduled to be euthanized. You can also follow dready-pineapple on Instagram to find photos of other dogs and puppies that are available for adoption or fostering.
If you are looking to adopt a dog or have the ability to help foster one of these dogs and save a life please email Jaime at firstname.lastname@example.org to get more information. There are currently SEVERAL litters of mixed and purebred German Shepard puppies, that are available now or will be coming available in the next few months. These puppies will be ready just in time for Christmas! Please email to reserve your puppy today!

🍍Meet the Pineapples🍍
"I love everything with two wheels (even three). Pineapple Pedicabs has been a great way for me to share my passion for bikes and Reno all while getting in a great workout. The tips are pretty good too. Don’t forget, this pedicab is fueled by tacos, so way more eco-friendly than even a Tesla Uber."
