    It was a real adventure! It was doable but at great parts of the track not easy because of the frozen snow on the path, which goes up and down. The landscape was beautiful and we were with a nice group of enthousiast and brave guys

      yes, but it will take longer rather than get off at Castricum , and it is early morning

      January 25, 2013

    • Sajiv C.

      Does anyone know if a digital copy of the ticket works??

      January 25, 2013

  • Ellen

    Does anyone know about the conditions of the parking area? I intend to drive, but do not have an special winter tires. I have been to events before where the parking area is a big field, so I am trying to find out if that is the situation with this event (in which case my car might get a bit stuck...)

    January 25, 2013

    • Bidisha

      We are already parked close to the meet up place (actually close to our hotel) and parking is on d road and its not bad..we don't have winter tyres. Not sure abt the parking close to the start point

      January 25, 2013

  • Ana

    Anyone else who will be there today itself? Perhaps we catch up for dinner/ drinks!

    January 25, 2013

  • Elisabeth V.

    Is there somebody from Amsterdam who goes there by car?

    Elisabeth

    January 12, 2013

    • Bidisha

    anyone leaving from Amsterdam?

    January 13, 2013

    • Sajiv C.

      Hi, I'm also leaving from Amsterdam... When do you guys leave? If we're enough of us, we could also rent a car for a day; that could work out to be more convenient (probably cheaper as well)

    If anyone has registered and ends up not being able to go, please let me know!

    Hello! I just registered. I plan to drive up from Den Haag. If anyone is in the Den Haag area, I can offer a ride. Looking forward to this event!

    January 7, 2013

    • Lorna

      Hey Ellen, mind if I hitch a ride with you?!

      January 13, 2013

    • Ellen

      Sure! That should not be a problem at all!

    January 12, 2013

    • Marie-José D.

      January 12, 2013

  • Thibault

    Just register for the south walk. looking forward to it!

    January 12, 2013

  • Sijmen M.

    Is the 9:15 time about right? I can’t be there much earlier (not before 8:30-ish, I think) because I’m limited by public transport.

    January 2, 2013

  • Mattymorris

    I've registered, will the organizer share contact details closer to the time, I haven't joined a walk with this group for ages, so doubt I have met anyone here before.

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.
