Ride Reno and Spin Sparks Free Bike Ride Event - Saturday May 18th

Ride Reno - Spin Sparks

Saturday, May 18th | 10am-12pm

This event is all about getting more people out there having fun on bikes! There will be two ways to ride: a 3-mile curated loop along the new Oddie-Wells separated bike lanes (for bigger kids and adults) and a short obstacle challenge course in the park (for smaller kids). There will also be free bike checks, community info tables (swag), vendors, and more. This is all thanks to generous support from County Commissioner Mariluz Garcia in partnership with RTC-Washoe, the Kiwanis Bike Program, and other partners. 

Free Bike Valet at Food Truck Friday 2024

Ride your bike and leave it with us 100% FREE from 4-9(ish)! We'll make sure it is safely secured while you enjoy the food, drinks, and music at Food Truck Friday. Look for the bike parking signs or ask a Food Truck Friday employee.

Bike problems? We may be able to provide basic maintenance on-site, staff permitting.

If you are interested in volunteering for bike valet, email info@bikewashoe.org for more information.

Bike Month 2024

May is National Bike Month! Bike Month is all about highlighting the many benefits of riding a bike and encouraging more people to try biking. The best way to celebrate Bike Month is simply to get on a bike: ride to work, ride to the store or just ride and enjoy the scenery outside. Join us on the fun and learn more about how to celebrate Bike Month in Washoe County.

We're on the Love to Ride App to #MakeEveryRideCount

Take the Alternative Transportation Safety Survey

The Truckee Meadows Bicycle Alliance is partnering with local leaders to improve the safety of alternative transportation in Washoe County and solve traffic, parking and health challenges while contributing to the economy.

Truckee Meadows Bicycle Alliance Board

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.

Bike Life Radio

TMBA is producing “Bike Life Radio” a fun show that airs on The Reno Bike Projects radio station KWNK 97.7 every first Sunday of the month at noon! Would you like to tell a bike story or have your business featured on Bike Life? Contact the host, Ky Plaskon at ky@nevada.unr.edu

Your business can reach potentially 350,000 people in Reno by sponsoring a message on Bike Life. Sponsorship messages start as low as $20. Contact Ky Plaskon for more information.

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.
