    For what its worth, I live in Sparks which is next to Reno and work in Reno. I saw a cyclist on his bike today, and the conditions are NOT very good. That photo is totally legit, that guy was just walking for a moment I'll bet.

    I think he was crossing the street and making a turn. I wouldn't wanna make a turn at speed with that much slush on the ground.
    Maybe he's just badass Winter Cycling: Are YOU badass?.
