Hills After Lunch

This is the Winter version of Hills After Work, and it's the same dose of hardcore bikey rejuvenation: a varying route through bicycle heaven of 25-30+ miles, and 2500+ feet of climbing.  Hardcore is more about attitude than conditioning. Even if you're kind of a slow climber, come on out.  The route will always be hard, but we'll be nice, and if you keep at it, you'll get better.

I repeat: we'll be nice! Come on out and give it a try. And if this ride seems like too much, (well, it IS a lot of really hard climbing), Try the Thursday Night Ride: http://www.meetup.com/Rubber2theroad/events/dhszsdyqpblb/

Helmets must be worn at all times while riding. This is a requirement and not a request. Obey traffic laws and remember you’re a representative of the greater cycling community and should conduct yourself that way on the road.  Represent us well!

Have their ride in good working order and bring a flat kit & the right size spare tube on all rides. If there is an issue with proper working or lack of equipment you may be asked to sit the ride out.

    Hey gang, I'm showing property in Oregon City this afternoon and can't make the ride. You have the route, change it if you want, just make sure to have a good ride. I'll try to get my miles in a little later. Vest, you're now Event Host!

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.
