Your membership dues support our daily advocacy, community and education programs, and strengthen the voice of cycling in our city, as we work toward better biking conditions.
When you sign up for a membership online, your Paypal auto-pay subscription will save you time and having to think about when to renew in a year. However, you can cancel your subscription from your Paypal account, or ask us to cancel it for you, at any time after sign-up. No strings. One-year-only memberships can be purchased in our shop at the front register, just ask a staff member! Membership details and pricing:

Business Membership $500/year (cash or in-kind goods/services)
Traveling by bicycle is the ideal way for residents to experience their neighborhood and support local businesses. Nationally, recognition is building that “bicycling means business” and a 2012 report from Advocacy Advance demonstrates that cyclists spend less per visit, but frequent local businesses more often and actually spend more over the same period of time as their driving counterparts. Reno Bike Project partners with local business through our Business Membership program to encourage business to those supporting the mission of the Reno Bike Project in expanding bicycling community and culture.
We signal boost new Business Members through each of our media outlets, as well as providing recognition on our website year round and in our annual report. Business members receive certificates and stickers to display on site as a Bike Friendly Business. A Business Membership includes five Velo Membership cards for owners and staff with unilimited access to our public workstations and member workshops! Please contact email@example.com if you are interested in purchasing a membership for your business or nonprofit.
