The Truckee Meadows Bicycle Alliance (TMBA) is a collaboration between local governments, non-profits, businesses, and individuals. We promote bicycling as an alternative form of transportation that plays a key role in reducing air pollution, reducing traffic congestion, and promoting healthy, active lifestyles. From 2005 until 2018, TMBA organized Bike Week in Washoe County. Bike Week became so successful in the Truckee Meadows that in 2019 we expanded our activities to encourage members of our community to ride instead of drive during the entire month of May.
Our mission is to make Washoe County a safer and more inclusive cycling community. We hope to achieve this mission through a combination of events and activities, a focus on improving local cycling policies and infrastructure, and fostering connection
You may notice that we sort of have two names, Truckee Meadows Bicycle Alliance and Bike Washoe. TMBA better represents one of our core values (building an alliance of local individuals and organizations to support cycling) and acknowledges that most of our efforts are concentrated in the Reno-Sparks area. Bike Washoe is simpler to remember, easier to type, and acknowledges that we try to serve the interests of cyclists throughout all of Washoe County. We admit that using both names may be a bit confusing, but we’re going to stick with it until we can have someone with with a professional eye for brand management coach us through any changes.
