« Older Entries We are open! Tuesday, March 31st, 2020
Reno Bike Project is now open for walk-up service & pick-up/drop-off for bike repairs.
We designed a model of operation that allows us to continue providing affordable bikes and bike repair without jeopardizing the health and safety of our staff and customers.

By providing a walk-up counter, customers can purchase bikes, tools, and parts, and can drop-off  bikes for repair without closely interacting with anyone.

Since we can’t safely operate our public workstations, we are now offering our bike repair services at a lower rate, and have discounted bike repair available upon request for those experiencing financial hardship.

We are also offering pick-ups and drop-offs for bike repair by appointment for $10 + $0.25/mile. To schedule pick-up of your bikes for repair, please fill out this form.

Bikes for Sale! Monday, March 30th, 2020

In order to allow our customers to safely view our bikes for sale, we have created a slideshow of our current inventory. If you are interested in purchasing one of the bikes, please call or visit our shop: 216 E Grove St. 775-323-4488.

Freewheels for Kids Spring 2020 Monday, February 24th, 2020

Reno Bike Project’s Freewheels for Kids outreach program provides free bikes to kids in need just in time for spring and summer. Children’s bikes, donated by community members, are repaired, tuned up, and spruced up by RBP volunteers. Those bikes are then donated to community organizations who distribute the bikes to families in need.

Join us, for one or both of the kids bike repair parties, to work on bikes for the tykes under the supervision of RBP mechanic-educators. Enjoy refreshments and the company of other service-minded people. No experience needed to volunteer—this is a great learning opportunity!

Reno Bike Project’s first-ever Tour de Pizza combines two of our biggest loves: pizza and bikes. Reno Bike Project is holding the first-ever Tour de Pizza to help increase its membership ranks, in particular, the Commuter-level participation. “We’re hoping the cycling community will become more involved in Reno Bike Project and become members,” said the Project’s Noah Silverman. “The Commuter member, in particular, gives us the funds to pay staff to repair bikes and ensure that everyone in our community has access to affordable bikes.” 

Tour de Pizza participants will ride on Saturday, Jan. 25 from 11:30 am – 3 pm. Participants will meet at RBP (216 E. Grove St) at 11:15 am for safety checks and then ride as a group to eat at three fantastic restaurants: Noble Pie Parlor (777 S Center St #100) and Sizzle Pie (190 S Center St), and gelato at Bibo Freddo (717 S Center St). 

Participation is free for RBP Commuter Members and $25 for other members. The $25 fee covers the cost of food at the three stops and a one-of-a-kind Tour de Pizza enamel pin. The ride will explore the side streets of Midtown and will be an opportunity to join fellow cyclists to make cycling more visible in Reno.

Commuter Members not only receive free pizza and a pin, but also a 20% discount on hard goods (like locks and tubes) the day of the event, as well as access to the bike repair workstations, an RBP t-shirt, and exclusive early bird heads-up on events and activities.
