ANYONE INTERESTED IN TAKING A LEADERSHIP ROLE PLEASE CONTACT AMANDA CARROLL OR RONI CREVELING. To continue to spread awareness and help our numbers grow we need more help in the months previous to our event. Radio, tv, social media, word of mouth. Anything you excel at we can find a way to use your talents for the cause.

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.
