Reno & Sparks Bike Shops

Bicycle Riding is Fun, Saves Money, and Helps You Stay in Shape

By

Reno and Sparks are mostly flat, making getting around on a bicycle a relatively easy proposition. Those who find peddling a pleasant way to get around will find an increasing number of fellow travelers. You will also find more accommodations along the roadways for bike riders, including new bike lanes and the colorful public art bicycle racks found around downtown Reno. The urban rider in the Truckee Meadows has a nice section of the Tahoe-Pyramid Bikeway to traverse as well.

Each shop is unique in some way. To get the right bike and service for you, check out a few and shop around before making a purchase.

Once you have a bicycle, you'll want to get pedaling. Check out "Reno Bike Riding Routes and Trails" for ideas on where to go.
