Calling all kayakers and canoeists in Louisiana Cajun country: we are a growing community of people who enjoy kayaking, canoeing, meeting other paddlers, and discovering new places to paddle in South Louisiana. Are there places you want to paddle but do not want to go on your own? There are hundreds of bayous, rivers, swamps and coastal marshes to explore throughout south central Louisiana. It is free to become a member and get updates via email on trips we plan; there is also no obligation to be a part of our community, just a love for the outdoors and a desire for adventure.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
