We are not survivalist or hoarders, but aim to share sustainability & peace in the midst of chaos by preparing & developing skills. We are not focused on zombies, apocalypse, doomsday, politics or conspiracies. We agree with protection and the right to bare arms, but are not focused on this topic nor do we focus on militant action.

We are a Judea-Christian Faith based group but will not discriminate from other beliefs provided that that the realization is that the organizers will run & conduct this group through their Judea-Christian beliefs. We will love and serve you the same regardless of your beliefs but will not alter how we run the group.

Our Goal is to share sustainability, learn/teach old lost skills and build community support for each. Preparing in Faith and Hope not fear and fanaticism.

Please note:

  • We are a group for ACTIVE INVOLVEMENT not a passive chat only forum.
  • If you do not attend 3 meetings within the year - your membership will be removed.
  • If you live further away than 2hrs from the Asheville area - we will gladly help you find group or one of our sub-groups that is equally as active but might not approve a membership out of our area due to the need for connecting locally.
  • There will be an opening prayer at the beginning of each meeting. This is not an apology for our Faith; this is simply a warning so that you are aware.
  • Membership dues of $1 per person - per year is required. The Meet-up Website costs us a monthly fee to maintain. Your help is greatly appreciated.

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.
