We are a sociable group of hikers/backpackers, cyclists and general outdoor enthusiasts. You are a fun-loving, adventurous sort with a penchant for spending time in the wilderness, doing wilderness things.  Okay, so maybe we got a little carried away with the description, but we're really excited you stopped by to read about our group!

The group started in 2006 with the idea of bringing together FredVegas-area locals who were interested in spending more time enjoying nature's playground in fellowship.  Whether you're new to the area and looking for an intro to what the region has to offer or a hardcore [hiker-cyclist-outdoorsman], we would love to have you!

Our activities are rated when posted, so you know what you're getting yourself into BEFORE you're in the thick of it.  They range from easy circuit day hikes in the Shenandoah National Park to challenging, multi-day backpacking in the White Mountains of New Hampshire and some of everything in between.  In addition, our members have taken on the task of providing in-service sessions to allow others to learn more about activities such as kayaking/canoeing, climbing, and wilderness preparedness.  As our membership grows, the variety and availability of events will grow.  So, join our group!  Learn something new from us or TEACH something--You won't be disappointed and we would be happy to have you!  Happy Trails!!

**Note: Your organizers will do everything possible to ensure each member has a good time at MeetUp events hosted by the group; however, honest self-assessment is incredibly important for you and for others.  Organizers can not be responsible for injury or loss during MeetUp activities.   You will be asked to complete a new member questionnaire. This allows us to get to know more about you, learn about the kind of activities you're interested in, and gauge your knowledge/skills/abilities.  Subsequently, your participation in some events may be limited if experience levels are not adequate to meet those required to avoid injury, illness, or death.

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.
