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.

I was thinking of joining your wrenching party. Do I need to bring anything? I have lots of riding experience, but very little mechanical. If I wish to donate is it best to give money or buy a bike or two?
Thank you in advance for any info you can provide.

I would like to donate a smaller ten speed. I would like the address to deliver the bike if you could use it.
