    I have yet to hear back from anyone. It would take over 3 hrs to arrive at Skyline via bus. I will check my notifications at 7am, but it looks like I will miss this meetup.

      Hi Samantha. I can pick you up at Rockridge BART. Let me know what time you will arrive. If a hassle, I can also come get you in Albany. Michelle[masked]

    Re: Is anyone able to give me a lift? I live in Albany/ do not drive. I can meet at a BART or close to any bus route.

    I've got a few REI 'friends and family' coupons to share on this trip, win-able via a fun trivia game while we hike!

    See you Sunday! -- and don't forget your completed waiver form!


    Thank you!

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.
