Bike Shop Owner Announces Bid For Governor

He's never run for a public office, but Jared Fisher hopes to ride his way into the hearts of Nevadans to win the Governor's seat in 2018. 

Fisher is the owner of a popular bicycle shop and bike tour company in Las Vegas, and is an advocate for public lands and clean energy. His shop, Las Vegas Cyclery in Summerlin, is powered by a vertical wind turbine and solar panels.

The Las Vegas Review Journal reportsthat Fisher, a Republican, announced his campaign will kick off with a 1,400-mile bike ride through Nevada on Monday.
