Rides from downtown Reno, 10-15 mi?

Hey all,

I'm in the El Dorado smack downtown (Virginia & 4th), I've got my bike with me, and if the last few nights are any indication, tomorrow morning I'll be awake around 5 and have free time until around 8. My bike has good lights, so I can ride before dawn.

Any recommendations for a nice 10-15mi rt that I won't get lost (first time in Reno, and I don't have a gps or smartphone), and won't be too full of morning commuter traffic?

Actually, looking at google maps, it looks like it might be cool to try to stick with the Truckee for about 7mi east -- is that bike path all the way, easy to follow?

THe answer is yes, the trail along the river is lovely. I made it a few miles out of town before I ran into a busy street (gladden?) and couldn't pick up the trail on the other side, so I turned around. I didn't have much time to ride anyways, and with no gloves my hands were getting numb, but it was nice to ride through the city along the river (despite the number of homeless)
