Burning Man 2017 is August 27-September 4.

Our extended hours are: 10a-8p on Friday 8/25, Saturday 8/26, Sunday 8/27, and Monday 8/28.

If you don’t know, now you know: the best way to get around the Black Rock Playa is by bike. And if you don’t have one, you should reserve one soon. Reno Bike Project has hundreds of Human Playa Vehicles available every year, and is your one-shop stop for accessories and service.

Electric Bike Demo Day Tuesday, August 8th, 2017

Reno Bike Project is now proud to offer electric bicycles from the Toronto-based bicycle company, Opus, for demo and sale. We envision a future where more motorists leave their cars at home and ride bikes instead, and we think embracing e-bikes moves us in that direction.

We know e-bikes are as new to many in our community as the are to us, so we invite you to form your own impressions with a free e-bike demo on August 12, from 10a to 1p at UNR’s Fleischmann Planetarium. Come take a ride on the newest e-bike technology, and experience the future of bicycle travel. We will also be offering a Demo Day discount of 10% ($280) off e-bike sales that day. RSVP on Facebook!

The models we currently offer for demo and sale are the Opus WKND flat-bar road bike design and the CONNECT city bike design with a step-through frame, euro style.
