Truckee Meadows Bicycle Alliance

Supporting a safe and inclusive cycling community in Washoe County.

Who We Are

The Truckee Meadows Bicycle Alliance is a collaboration between local governments, non-profits, businesses, and individuals. We promote bicycling as an alternative form of transportation which reduces air pollution, reduces traffic congestion, promotes transportation independence, and promotes healthy, active lifestyles.

Events & Activities

From frequent events like monthly dinner rides and Draft Meetups to annual events like Bike Month and the Washoe County Tweed Ride, TMBA aims to serve up a wide range of non-competitive opportunities for cyclists of all types and abilities to connect and celebrate cycling.

Infrastructure, Policy, & Advocacy

If you build it, they will ride. TMBA believes that sensible policy related to cycling and a connected, protected, and equitable system of bike infrastructure will provide benefits for the county that extend well beyond just making cyclists happy.

Alliance Building

As our name implies, we recognize that one of cycling community’s greatest strengths lies in the fact that there is a broad range of individuals and organizations in our area that support cycling in one way or another. Our hope is that we can find ways to support a culture of collaboration among these various groups so that we all may be more successful.

Support the Alliance

Your financial support can have a HUGE positive impact on our ability to achieve our mission of making Washoe County a safer and more inclusive cycling community.

Donate Today

TMBA relies on individual donations, in-kind support from our partners and volunteers, and revenue from some of our events (most of our events are free, though). We accept online donations to make it easy for you to support safe and inclusive cycling in Washoe County. Donations of any amount, large or small, can make a difference.

Email Updates

While we rely on social media for much of our outreach, we also use email blasts to let people know about upcoming events, updates about our organization, volunteer opportunities, opportunities to support cycling through public comment, and so on. We usually send one, maybe two, emails per month. Use the form below to sign up for updates.
