    For anyone on the fence about signing up due to transportation (or lack thereof), I still have room for 1-2 more people as long as I can pick up/drop off at Van Dorn metro.

    Hi Lindsey, thanks for your offer of a ride! I could meet you in Alexandria (do you live near a metro stop?) Can you let me know if you still have a spot free? Then I'll go ahead and sign up. Thank you!

    Hello- I would like to g but do not have a car. I live in Alexandria near Hybla Valley.

      i'm sure it's fun ride , and lunch,etc. no matter what, it's not easy to find places that will let you ride at your own pace anymore..

      April 12, 2013

  • "Adventure G.

    It is an easy ride - if you are an experienced rider and looking to go at a cantor - probably not the right ride for you. :)

    April 12, 2013

  • Chip

    can anyone tell me ,that's done this before, if they will allow you to trott or cantor ,or pick up a pace with your horse??.I'm asking because i'm an experienced rider,not a jumper or show horseman ,just a hard rider.

    I'll be a little short on time heading out Saturday morning so probably won't have time to pick anyone up, but if you can meet me near my home in Alexandria I have room in the car for 2 people.

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.
