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.

Send Your Kid to Bike Camp!

Over Spring Break, RBP is hosting two cycling camps! From March 26-30, send your teens (and pre-teens) to our introductory Major Taylor Ride Camp, where we learn road safety, bike handling, mechanics, and more; all while exploring the Truckee Meadows and doing fun activities on bicycle. At only $125 per head, the Major Taylor Ride Camp is fun, physical, and affordable. Scholarships are available.

If your child already has the basics of bike riding down, is enthusiastic about mountain biking, and ready to hone more advanced skills, sign them up for the $150 Major Taylor Intermediate Mountain Biking Camp from April 2-6! This group will gain intermediate road safety (to get them to the trailhead), advanced bike handling, mechanics, and more; and they get the skinny on some of the best mountain biking opportunities in Reno! Make sure your kid spends part of break outdoors! Send any questions to our Youth Programs Coordinator, Brandi.

Support KWNK by becoming a member

KWNK needs your help for it’s membership drive. You can sign up or donate here.

You can read more on the website here.

KWNK 97.7FM is Reno’s first freeform, non-commercial, community radio project. After nearly a decade of work to bring this project to fruition, KWNK officially launched on Oct. 31, 2017, on 97.7FM with a slate of more than 50 volunteer DJs and programming from 4pm-4am daily.

 

The KWNK Radiothon is a community-driven, listener-driven fundraising campaign to ensure KWNK’s future on-air, online, and in our community. This is KWNK’s first membership drive, and its most important. Meeting our goal solidifies the station within our community, while also growing it in very important ways, including: taking the station to 24-hr programming; providing online streaming and show archiving; purchasing necessary equipment and supplies; and more.

PURPOSE

  • 24-hour programming

  • Online Streaming

  • Support operational costs – tower lease, licenses, fees

  • Support one-time studio, recording and equipment costs

  • Help with training and education of new DJs and program development

  • Grow program capacity by more than 50% (meaning more community DJs and more programs!)

  • Be truly listener and community-supported. We own it!

  • Ongoing station sustainability

  • Show archive and documentation

  • New website to support streaming, DJ profiles and playlists, news and information, and more.

Bikes for Tykes

Put a little extra holiday cheer out into the world and our community, and join us at one of two volunteer wrenching parties on December 2 or December 9 from 11-3!

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, tuned up, and spruced up by RBP volunteers. Those bikes are then donated to community organizations who distribute the bikes to families in need.


Join us to work on bikes for the tykes, under the supervision of RBP mechanics. Enjoy refreshments and the company of other service-minded people. No experience needed to volunteer—this is a great learning opportunity!
