    Friday: early afternoon,
    West Bragg Creek.
    "Approx +2C air temps, snow temp variable between -3′ish and ~+2 I’d say. FRESHLY GROOMED earlier today!! sweeeeeet! We skiid Crystal, Sundog, Loggers, Crystal w/ my wife who’s recovering from a ruptured Achilles (last Sept) so happy to get ~7km loop done. Primarily VR45 wax which was “good enough” if your technique & weight transfer was spot on plus lots of arm strength for the pole pushing. Otherwise not grippy enough. Loggers had several sections of slushy snow in the tracks which will by icy Sat. morning. Otherwise I’d say if you’re out there later this eve or early Saturday you’ll have excellent conditions. After that…. meh… then… squishy squishy (perfect for waxless) and/or dicey & icy early Sunday. Get out while you can!"

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.
