Welcome to Reno Bike Project

The organization is built around the belief that the bicycle is the world’s greatest, most utilized mode of transportation and that every individual, regardless of age, gender, race, or class has a right to afford, maintain, and enjoy one.

Seasonal Shop Hours

Thank you, one and all, for an incredible year at the Reno Bike Project! 2016 has been a pretty wild ride accompanied by many surprises, for better or worse. But what isn’t a surprise at all is that, with the support of this community, we were able to meet or beat many of the ambitious goals we set for ourselves, and accomplished a ton more of great work toward our mission. We remain committed to serving the cycling community in both established and new ways, next year! We’re winding down for the holidays now, and will be closed starting Friday 12/23, to reopen on Tuesday 1/3. When we reopen in January, we will be operating on the same 5-day schedule as we were this month:

Tuesday 10am-5pm

Wednesday 10am-5pm

Thursday 10am-6pm

Friday 10am-6pm

Saturday 10am-5pm

We’re looking forward to seeing you in 2017. Go ride bikes!

Gift the Gift of Bikes This December

Reno Bike Project’s Freewheels for Kids outreach program provides free bikes to kids in need during the holiday season. Children’s bikes, donated by community members, are repaired and tuned up by RBP volunteers. Those bikes are then donated to community organizations who distribute the bikes to families in extreme need, many of whom will currently be living in shelters or in temporary housing.

Our 2016 bike drive is underway! If your family has outgrown or out-of-use bikes, donate them to Reno Bike Project and we’ll recycle them into a new home! Cash donations are also appreciated, as we will be replacing parts on some bikes to they’re not only ready to ride, but totally appealing to their new owners, too.

Our two Freewheels volunteer wrenching parties will be on December 3 and December 10 from 11am-3pm. Volunteers don’t need to have any prior mechanical experience to come in and help; our mechanic educators will oversee and assist in all repairs, and refreshments will be provided as a small thank you. This is a great learning opportunity for new volunteers.

Come with your knobbly tires, breathe that cold, crisp air and appreciate the gorgeous colors of Fall with friends. If you’re new to riding off-road, no worries! This is a perfect trail system for beginners.
