FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHO CAN SELL AT THE SWAP?
Anyone! Reno Wheelmen’s vendors run the gamut from folks who have too many bike components on their workbench to long-standing bike shops and cycling brands. We don’t do any curation of vendors aside from encouraging past vendors from returning to the Swap and spreading the word about the Swap, so the mix is fresh every year.
WHO CAN BUY STUFF AT THE SWAP?
Anyone! No need to bring anything to ‘swap’. There tend to be many transactions between vendors as well.
WHAT CAN I FIND AT THE BIKE SWAP?
As mentioned above, the vendors at the Swap change from year to year, so it’s impossible to nail down exactly what’s available. However, it’s a good bet that you’ll find some great deals on just about anything cycling. We get all sorts of complete bikes, frames, forks, components, wheels, tools, clothes, and accessories, even art.
HOW DO I PAY FOR STUFF AT THE SWAP?
Most sellers will prefer cash for purchases. Some vendors may accept Venmo, PayPal, or other services set-up on their mobile devices.
WILL THERE BE FOOD AT THE SWAP?

Welcome to 2020 and the fourth Friday of the year!
Join us for our monthly Fourth Friday event! We aim to get cyclists of all types get together to swarm local businesses and organizations that either support cyclists/ local cycling events or are located along existing bike infrastructure. This month, we’ll test out the area’s first two-way cycle track!
Here’s the agenda:
5:30-6:30: Pre-dinner social at Copenhagen Bar. This stop is 21+ and cash only.
6:30-7:30: Dinner at In-N-Out Burger. This stop is family friendly. Bike parking will be of the creative type.
7:30-8:30: Post-dinner social at IMBĪB Custom Brews.
From the first stop to the last, there is about 3.5 miles of travel (here’s the approximate route: https://goo.gl/maps/7npkNmoZDMFmHiqL8).
This event is free, except that you need to pay for your own drinks and food. This event is SUPER casual, so meet up or leave whenever you want. Schedule is subject to change.
This is a bike at your own risk event. You are responsible for your own safety (helmets, lights, etc.) and security (bike locks, etc.). Remember to drink and ride responsibly.
Join us for another night of food, drinks, and movie watching at the super bike-friendly Patagonia Outlet in downtown Reno.
Reno Bike Project (RBP) has been doing this one for years, and they don’t aim to stop anytime soon. If you don’t already know the drill, here it is:
From 6-10a on Friday, May 17 (which is Bike to Work Day), come by our second shop at 635 E 4th St., on a bike—and being on a bike is key, for free breakfast (coffee, pancakes, bacon, fresh fruit, and juice) and camaraderie before you head off to school or work! We’re moving this event back to 4th for 2019, because there’s no pancake breakfast like a 4th Street pancake breakfast.
RBP members do get a free t-shirt at this event, and visitors are welcome to become members day-of.
The Regional Transportation Commission of Washoe County – RTC is teaming up with the Reno Bike Project to offer a free bicycle repair clinic at the bike fix-it station at RTC 4TH STREET STATION in Downtown Reno. Bring your bike and we’ll help you get it ready to ride!
Just like last year, we will be convening on Mother’s Day. Start your morning in the saddle, with one of three group rides that leave starting at 9:00 a.m., then return to mingle and connect with friends and resources at the after-ride social until 1:00 p.m. Enjoy the outdoor marketplace, the chance to introduce yourself to local cycling groups, complimentary mimosas, a live DJ, and fun & accessible cycling-related group activities!
This year, we are developing our theme around “the power of motherhood,” and in the weeks leading up to Cyclofemme we will be creating features of cyclists who help nurture and support Reno’s bike community, particularly youth. If you, or someone you know, is worthy of being a Cyclofemme Ambassador, please let us know your interest (this is not exclusive to mothers who have given birth)!
Tha Tahoe-Pyramid Trail (TPT) will be celebrating the anniversary of the Mogul-Verdi trail opening.
