Cycling is Cool : Bike Culture in Reno

Don’t forget your two-wheeled best friend when you visit this bike friendly area! From gorgeous scenery to unique events, cycling is cool in Reno.

 

Reno Bike Project

Reno Bike Project has put over 6,000 bikes back into the Reno Tahoe community through their shop and various programs. Visit their bright pink shop in downtown Reno to see refurbished bicycles and bicycle parts for sale, bike maintenance stations, and mechanic workshops. In addition to monthly rides, RBP’s non-profit vision encourages bicycle transportation in the area by promoting cycling growth initiatives along side promoting events that appeal to both locals and tourists to the area.

RBP is celebrating a decade of promoting butts on bikes in Reno at their 10th Anniversary Party this Saturday, October 1st. Celebrate Reno’s cycling community while enjoying food and beverages from local spots including The Depot, Under the Rose Brewing Company, Silver Peak, and more. Don’t miss an exciting raffle with prizes from Patagonia and other local businesses.

 

CrossReno Cyclocross

This Saturday, October 1st, hundreds of professional and elite amateur cyclists join together for the very unique CrossReno Cyclocross at Rancho San Rafael Regional Park in Reno. Watch as road cyclists and mountain bikers compete aggressively on hybrid bikes in diverse conditions. This is a very spectator-friendly event with access to all parts of the race course. Come for the racing, stay for the fun. There’s a Craft Beer Garden, live music, and cheering/heckling the athletes is encouraged!

Reno Brew Bike

Not your traditional biking experience, Reno Brew Bike might be the greatest way to experience downtown with your 21+ friends. Hop on a pedal-powered custom bicycle that takes up to 15 passengers around local pubs, bars, and breweries.
