  • Really depends on the weather!!

    I have the full moon timing right this time so that it will rise before we finish. ;)

    Ride either one of my Dutchman Todd lake loops or down to Sparks lake and back. Either way we could be out for 3 hours. Take that as a hint as to how long your lights need to last. Good thing is you run your lights on the lowest settings when riding in the snow. Too much light and it is hard to see due to reflection. We also had a full moon on Wednesday so it will be bright.
    Dress appropriately low of 32° with a breeze so its almost shorts and t-shirts while riding. ;)
    Dutchman Todd Lake about 10 miles with one 1/4 mile hike-a-bike up hill. If you can clean this hill I'll buy you a growler fill of your choice.
    Sparks lake out and back ~ 11 miles with a steady climb back up.
    Meet at Crows Feet Commons 4:30 pm to carpool then drive up to Dutchman Snow park.

    Another benefit of a night ride is there shouldn't be many Snowmobiles.

    Items needed. • Fatbike
    • your 10 essentials
    • Helmets mandatory
    • Front light and rear blinky. mandatory
    If we are out on Cascades Lake HWY wee need to be visible to the snowmobiles so at a minimum the last person in line needs to run a blinky.

    Well it sure sounds funny to say but I'm canceling this ride due to snow. ;) Well too much snow to have a fun ride in. I am trying to find the snowmobile grooming schedule but it is not online anymore. Once I find out when they are grooming I'll setup another group ride.

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.
