    Now my most favorite ride in the WW catalogue!, thanks guy and bill!!

    The deal with the San Andreas fault and the mission is that the escarpment in front of the mission where the plowed field is, is the actual fault line. 1798 a year after the mission was built is the only time the fault affected the mission itself. Any other fault movement has left the mission with little to no affect.

    I now remember. Flat and long is not necessarily easier than hilly and long. I also remembered that I'm allergic to the elements such as wind and sun. Maybe I should consider all covered bicycle?

    Sorry I missed the ride--I was home with a cold. :-( I'm sure it was great and hope everyone had fun!

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.
