    A personal success for me. It's been a while since I've hiked and the choice of trail was varied in terrain and interesting in natural features. A big plus was getting to use a restroom vs. the woods!

    Looking for a ride and will split all expenses...
    Pick up by George Washington Bridge around 178th or 179th Streets corner with Broadway...
    Fort Lee, New Jersey is also a good place...
    Neptune Diner at Astoria Boulevard is also fine for pick up...

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.
