Since our inception in 2006, Reno Bike Project has striven to make cycling affordable and accessible to all Renoites, no matter their income bracket. Earlier this year, we expanded shop hours to six days a week in order to better serve the community. This month, for the first time, we are offering a day each month of free access to our public workstations and assistance from Mechanic Educators in the spirit of real accessibility. Share the word: Second Saturdays are gratis at RBP.

Shop Closed for Memorial Day

Dearest Patrons,

We will be closed on Monday, May 25 for Memorial Day. Memorial Day is not to be confused with Veterans Day; Memorial Day is a day of remembering the women and men who died while serving, while Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans. Poppies have been worn as a symbol of remembrance for fallen soldiers since 1920.

Best, RBP
