    Nice route. Starbucks at the Spectrum was a good stopping point. But the duck club and picnic after the ride were a nice way to end our ride. Thanks for the food, Matt!!

    Ok a bit confused. I am not sure if we meet at that Duck Club, or the large parking lot across from the duck club (over the channel) or near University and Campus Drive. I guess wing it

  • Matt E.

    Exactly Mike, we plan on parking on the north side of the driveway leading to the Club House.
    Dave, the meeting spot is close to the intersection of Campus and University in Irvine, Call me should you have trouble finding the place.

    On my view in google maps (without an exact address) it looked like a good sized parking lot was just across the entrance to the Duck House. That's where we should park, not at the Duck House proper.

    "quack quack" means yes I am attending. Matt, I looked at 5 Riparian Way on Google maps. All it shows is a street with nuthin. No ducks, no duck club, no parking lot. I assume a parking lot is visible near this address.

    March 14, 2013

  • Matt E.

    Wish I could. Until I am sure the bleeding is completely stop, I’m grounded at home. My nose bled a few times today when I coughed.

    This should be fun with some new scenery. Might make it a picnic at the Duck House afterward for those who want to bring a lunch! Hey Ed, you could come to that!! :o)

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.
