    Very good long group ride with a nice bunch. The route worked out well, a good mix of flats, climbs and descents. Other than a sprinkle or two of rain a few times during the ride, we enjoyed great riding weather. See you all on the next ride.

    Hi Maurice. Can you help me gauge the amount of car traffic on this ride? = Matthews Loop or the one we did from Bill Galloway's house?

      Less traffic than waxhaw weddington ride, more than Bill's ride but the pace will be like the waxhaw 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.
