The cost is $275 for the 16 day course if you pay in advance, $50 per weekend or $35 per day--your choice as long as space is available. People who pay in advance have space priority. Full scholarships are available for aspiring young farmers (age 19-36) who fit requirements.

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.
