NOTES:


 

I WILL MONITOR WEATHER CONDITIONS AS THE HIKE GETS CLOSER

*Since it is a late season, prepare for changing weather conditions/ temps - I will post expected conditions as the date gets closer.

*Expect mud and possibly some snowy patches on this hike. A change into more comfortable shoes for the bar is recommended, especially if your boots are not waterproof.

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.
