FreeWheels 4 Kids!
A FreeWheels4Kids Night or FW4K Volunteer Event is intended to be fun and for all skill levels! You don't need to know how to wrench on bikes to help us out. We can either teach you or put you to work some other way such as cleaning the bike or adding reflectors. There's something for everyone. If you've been wanting to get in the door, this is a great first step!
We get kids bikes donated all year long. We host these parties. You tune up the bikes. Then we make sure they get into the hands of kids who otherwise wouldn't have a bike. It's heartwarming and super cool!
This workshop is open to those who identify as femmes, trans (the whole trans fam), women, non-binary, and genderfluid. We offer a safe, welcoming, affirming, and educational workspace at our bike shop at 216 E Grove St. This workshop has an informal structure and is driven by participants’ interests and the type of work their bicycles need. Open to Reno Bike Project Members. Non-members may attend their first FTWN-B Night before choosing to become a member. Participants should bring their own bicycles, or come to work on the group project. Reno Bike Project will provide tools. To be added to the FTWN-B mailing list for weekly workshop reminders, news, & updates, contact us.
Tuesday Tune Up Workshops
It's been a long time coming but we are beyond excited to announce that weekly after-hours workshops have returned to RBP every Tuesday night!
We have assembled an all-star cast of volunteers, friends of RBP and genuine good folks to host workshops at our 4th St. location. These workshops will be loosely structured with a theme each week (hubs, truing wheels, brakes, etc) but will be adapted based on the needs of those in attendance.
Bring your own bike to work on or help out on a group project! This workshop is focused on creating space for the bike community while taking some of the mystery out of bike repair and maintenance and sharing tips we've learned along the way.
The first Tuesday of every month will remain unchanged (and at Grove St.) as FTWN-B Night, exclusively for femme, trans, women and non-binary folks in our community. The second, third, fourth and fifth Tuesdays are for Tune Up Tuesdays at 635 E. 4th St.
All workshops are FREE to members of RBP.
