We are a niche group of social mountain bikers who ride a particular pace.   Please read entire description.  Note the trail rating explanation and release of liability below the 2 diagrams.

  • Primarily an over 40 (and 50, and 60) group.  Minimum age 25.
  • Enjoys descents and riding rocks and other trail irregularities.  Not a beginner group. Typical members have been mountain biking for years.
  • We are slow up hill.  See diagrams 1 & 2 below for clarification.
  • We stop and smell the roses along the way.
  • Usually a little social time after the ride, either tailgating at the trailhead or at a pub or restaurant.
  • Safe and friendly, follows park / trail rules, good trail etiquette.
  • Self-sufficient riders.  If separated from group each rider able to find their own way along route or back to their car. And while most riders will help if you have a bike problem, each rider needs to be able to deal with their own bike problems.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

TRAIL RATING EXPLANATION
Trails are given two ratings, difficulty of climbs (C0 – C4), and technical difficulty (T0 – T4). Use this as a general guideline only. Trail ratings are subjective and difficulty varies along the route of any trail.

CLIMBING / ENDURANCE
C0 - Barely up hill.
C1 – Climbs minor by local trail standards.
C2 – Moderate climbs, huffing and puffing expected.
C3 – Lung buster.  Prolonged climbs. Some will walk their bikes in sections.  
C4 – Evil, nasty, long climbs.  We will rarely, if ever, do these.

TECHNICAL
T0 – Well groomed gravel.  Like the gravel road up Waterton Canyon.
T1 - May have loose gravel, erosion ruts, rocks, tree roots. Requires  paying attention but doesn’t require advanced riding technique.
T2 - Rocks, switchbacks, roots, etc that require experience and technique.
T3 - Tougher rocks and switchbacks and drops up to 1 foot or a little more.
T4 - Highest skill level required. We don’t ride these. Few mortals do.

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.
