    A wonderful day for a bike ride. We had a nice group and a great lunch too.

    This was a great Meet-up on a beautiful day. Got to know three others better and do an activity I love. The lunch was at “crazy” Venice Beach by the bike path and it was excellent. We even had music by a blues band and (some old nut playing) Bar Piano.

    I will be coming from Malibu. I can put my bike on the rack on the bus. I would like to meet you near the Santa Monica Pier. I will be there around 10:30. I can ride with everyone to Will Rogers and back to Venice, then I will head back to Santa Monica to take the bus back to Malibu. Would that be okay?

    Have fun guys! I wish I could go, but I live out in the 'Horse-Ville' part of LA and can't make it to the Marina so early in the morning. I'll see you next time!

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.
