    started off a little challenging for me and I opted out after the initial climb. Didn't turn back though and ended up continuing the first loop with a family from Staten Island. Had a great time. Sorry I missed out on the Meet up Group.

    This is a little late but dogs are welcomed on the hike. Just be sure you know what your canines are capable of and bring plenty of water for them.

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.
