We welcome people from all life stages.

Dogs and children are always welcome, as walk slowly.


We hope to see everyone there!

Look for the vehicle with the road cone on the roof - that will be your hiking party for the day. We will gather at the South Carin of the Bruce Trail, and move to the start of the hike. when everyone arrives.

    It was wonderful, according to my fitness device, we walked 13,000 steps plus with the climbing, equivalent to 28 flights of stairs, so it was a great learning and fitness hike. Not to mention the gorgeous weather and nature surrounding us.

    I had walked today's route a hundred times before and still knew next to nothing of the history and artifacts until today. What an inspired outing!!! Thank you, Wolf, for sharing your incredible knowledge of the area and thank you to everyone for a really fun day in the great outdoors!!!

    Since I am new to the group and haven't met anyone yet. Will there be some identifier such as a sign or someone wearing a safety vest for me to recognize the group at the meeting point?

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.
