4. Additional notes:

P.S. I intend to do other variations of this ride and to ride on other paths when I have enough time to plan and test the rides. Suggestions would be welcomed.

    Good ride with fast riders; excellent exercise; days are getting shorter so speed need to increase I guess ;)

    I'm changing my attendance to 'no', because I likely will not be able to make it. Sorry for the last minute change.

    I am happy that the list of attendees increased yesterday... (possibly because of yesterday's rain and today's favorable forecast); This will potentially be my last organized event for a while as September is generally a busier month at work.

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.

Henry, started Reno Motorcycle Riders
