    The Buckeye TrailFest was a great time. We had 165 people register. The weather was mostly great. There were lots of program, presentations and hikes to choose from. Everyone made new friends. The silent auction and live auction raised ~$4,500 for the Buckeye Trail Association.

    The Governor of Ohio has proclaimed April 26, 2012 to be Buckeye Trail Day in Ohio! This resolution was made possible by the efforts of the Buckeye TrailFest Publicity Team. Please celebrate this special day. What a great kick off to Buckeye TrailFest!

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.
