Canfest this Saturday! Thursday, November 10th, 2011

Local, national and international breweries will attend CANFEST to show off their artisan canned beer

We found a perfect opportunity to blend two things we love most, bikes and brews, at the third annual Canned Beer Festival this weekend. Volunteers from RBP will be helping out at CanFest at the Reno Ballroom (address: 401 N. Virginia St.) this Saturday, Nov. 12, 2011 starting at around 4:30.

If you haven’t done so already bring a bike down to the shop, the first 50 people to donate a bike will receive a $10 discount ticket to the festival. Hurry! We don’t have many tickets left!

Thanks to all the folks who already donated bikes, we’ll see you on Saturday!

Remember ride your bike to the event and we will keep it safe for you in our Bike Valet set up inside.

ALSO- On Saturday bring a bike to donate! We will still be accepting bike donations at Canfest! 

Canfest was started in 2009 by Buckbean Brewing Co., a local brewery. They wanted to spread the word about the delights of canned beer to the public who might be wary of beer in a can because it brings back memories of college parties littered to the ceilings with Keystone Lite cans. Yuck. However beer can still be delicious if served by can, and if you’re skeptical ride down to this event to taste for yourself.

Tickets are $25, or $5 for designated drivers, at

Chatting with Chelsea Wednesday, January 16th, 2008

100_5689A room full of Reno Bike enthusiasts, including Noah, Leah, Carrie, Earl, Merrie, and Mike from RBP, Terry McAfee of Nevada Bike Coalition, Janet from the Tahoe Pyramid Bikeway, and others got a chance today to talk with Chelsea Clinton about issues and concerns we have about bike transportation. It was a nice chat. Chelsea insists that her mother has a lot of plans to make the world a better place for environmentally minded and active young people like ourselves.

It doesn’t seem like bicycle transportation is quite on the presidential political radar yet, but there’s still hope. Chelsea didn’t seem prepared for my question about dulling the pain of gas prices by avoiding using a car as much as possible. Rather she moved on pretty quickly to other energy related topics. Which is fine. There are big fish to fry, though transportation is much larger than just energy and pollution. And altering CAFE standards or upgrading government building efficiency over 10 or 20 year ranges is too little too late. You can’t dull the sting of change by waiting. That will only make it more expensive and more likely to be reversed…

If you’re of a mind to, please get out this Saturday and caucus. If not, make sure you vote next November.

Thank You, Chelsea, Emily and America for taking the time to talk bikes with us!
