    I'm very tempted to join in on this ride, however I got issues with my bicycle. I have some 700x38 smooth tires with grooves in them, that I found out like to slip off roots. I have to find an fix if I want to ride trails. I hope knobby 29's can fit.

    Sorry boys, I'm bailing on you…the smashed achilles tendon is not happy and I'm going to do a road ride close to home for sake of ease/pain. Have fun and hopefully I can get out to that area with you another time!

    I'd like to know it in advance if you all decide to meet at the trailhead. The Brentwood station parking lot is a nice place but I don't want to go there on my own.

    • Trevor B.

      It is your choice, Brentwood at 6:00 or trailhead at 7:00. If people need a ride they will need to coordinate that.

      I'm at the trailhead at 7pm since I live in the south and can't really fit more than one in my little car.

    Sounds good,
    Who is coming from the North of the city??

    I do not have a bike rack and would also prefer to just meet people at the trailhead.

    If we have enough rides I'm wondering if I can meet you there as I'm in the far south...if not let me know, and I think I can squish in one rider and bike as well as mine.

    July 7, 2013

    • Trevor B.

      Of course you can meet us there, see you at 7:00!

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.
