Our clinics will still be free and OtterBox will give away a case to LifeProof your phone and Mountainsmith will give away a $100 gift card at every clinic! And a huge shout out to Butterfly Pavilion for hosting our clinics!

      It is a great charity, and a great event. I went last year, and I'll be there again this year. Cottonwood shindigs are always a good time.

    I work for Cottonwood, so I will definitely be at the Bash, probably as a volunteer. See you there!

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.
