THIS IS SUMMER
AUGUST 15 - 16, 2020
Rollers pick the playlist! The Amplified Entertaiment DJs – the very best in Northern Nevada – will take requests for the front and the back of the Roll at the Reno Arch Party Zone. Songs will be chosen during the ride. If your request is picked, your name will be called out and you will win a RiverFest prize! Must have requests in by 10:30am.
THE COSTUME CONTEST
REVAMPED FOR 2020
The most unique bike ride in Northern Nevada is getting an amped up RENOvation in 2020 with more party zones, more entertainment, more chances to win, and more summer fun! Award-winning Amplified Entertainment DJs and the Amp It Up girls will lead the costumed slow ride spinning your songs. Another DJ will cap off the ride playing a different musical vibe selected by you. In the middle, entertainment on wheels will weave in and out of the crowd as you roll through Reno from party stop to party stop. From under the Reno Arch to Chrissy Caughlin Park and back to the heart of the biggest little city, 7-miles of roads will be shut down just for you! This is a once a year experience where you get to own some of the city’s most iconic streets. So gather your family and friends, grab your favorite bicycle, put on your craziest costume, and get ready for a summer adventure!
The Reno River Roll is open to all ages and all types of bicycles. Space is limited. The thrill is not.
Adult Registration – $20
Kids (7 -12 years) – $12
Kids 6 and under – Free (must be secured in bike seat or bike trailer)
All Rollers will receive a bib and a bag full of swag. A portion of the Reno River Roll benefits the Reno Bike Project.
