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.

Join us for a different kind of community ride from what we’ve done before with our Sloth Pedal series: on the morning of October 15 we’re meeting at Horseman’s Park for a TRAIL RIDE! 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.
