    I live in Queens and meeting at Brooklyn will be a long detour for me. I can take subway to LIRR easily in Queens, and would like to meet the group at Port Washington station. Please let me know how and where I can join the group after getting off LIRR at Port Washington.
    Also, are we suppose to bring lunch or is there a lunch plan for the group?

      Vivian, meet us at 9:36 am right at Pw station and of course you can bring your lunch with you.

      I will probably take the same train, so arriving at Pw at the same time as the group. Can I have your phone # in case I'm not able to locate the group - never been to Pw before? Thanks.

  • Mila

    Everybody, please bring lunch and some snacks.
    There are cosy picnic tables to sit at. So at some point we'll have lunch in a shade, surrounded by green valley.

    Mila. There are many great places to eat in the immediate area of the station. The estate is a bit of a hike from there however so bringing lunch or snacks would be recommended. Not sure if it's legal to swim but there is a beach and lots of easy hiking on the property itself.

    • Mila

      Thanks Matt. Sometimes they allowed you to swim, sometimes not and only 5' or 6' from the shore. We'll definitely bring lunch with us. Why don't you join this time as well?

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.
