Questions & Contact Info

Let's take a leisurely ride around the city, enjoying the near-spring weather and the sights and sounds of DC on the weekend. We will start from Eastern Market metro (by the trees in the grassy area) and pedal around the city for about two hours. This will be an easy pace, for those of us who have been indoors all winter!

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.
