    Tai chi is a gentle form of exercise, often described as "meditation in motion," but it might well be called "medication in motion."

    There is a growing body of carefully conducted research building a compelling case for tai chi for the prevention and rehabilitation of many conditions commonly associated with age.

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.
