    I won't be able to make it tonight; the airline messed up my flight and the one they put me on instead (though admittedly a free seating upgrade) won't arrive until too late :(

  • Cassandra T.

    I decided to drive so I have 4 seats in my car available, coming from alameda so anyone along the way or Bart pickups. Probably leaving around 4 to avoid traffic but I can also go to the nearest BART to the meetup if people need it. I haven't looked at public transport options

    December 8, 2013

    • Michelle W.

      I am near Downtown Berkeley / north Berkeley Bart

      December 8, 2013

    Hi Everyone, For Monday's meetup we're going to remove the Algorithm Corsera portion since the we've run through all of the videos and December will be strange time to start a new series. The other options will remain the same

      thanks! (I'm hoping for a series in the south bay sometime - but the facebook session is fairly close!)

  • Zoe M.

    I cannot attend this session. Facebook is a wonderful location, but it's too far away for me to get to.

    November 8, 2013

  • Chantal E.

    Hi Ladies, You may have noticed the earlier start time for this event, Facebook serves dinner at 6:00pm so if you'd like to come by earlier to eat you're welcome to, otherwise we'll be kicking of the night's events at 7:00pm.

    Hope you all can make it!

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.
