If you're doing the 6PM ride, it's advisable to bring lights, we may get caught in the dark towards the end of the ride.

Contact me for delays, I want to start on time but can wait a few mins

For directions: We will be parked behind The Gardens Ice House, look for a pepper white mini cooper. The map will show the wrong place, but as soon as you get into the driveway, the ice house will be on your left.

Please comment on what time you will be attending when you RSVP

About Fairland: 95% non-technical ride with few major climbs and no mandatory obstacles (they all have ride-arounds). Promise, no rocks. None! (there is one section of busted-up concrete, but it's not rocks, and it's only 10-15 feet long). Anyway, there are a couple good places to stop and practice log-overs, and balance on the boardwalks, and some good flow trails.

First loop (About 5 Miles) Moderate/Fast:

This pace is intended for the experience rider who wishes to push themselves above the average pace. These rides will seldom have regular breaks and require a significant level of fitness and bike handling skills in order to stay with the group.

2nd Loop Beginner Friendly Casual/Moderate: 

While still laid back and “casual” in nature this pace will have fewer stops/breaks along the way. Often times stronger riders will lead and attend a casual/moderate pace if the aim of the ride is more social in nature. Riders with an average level of fitness and at least a few months of regular riding under their belts should do fine on this level of ride.

Beginners, 2nd loop shooting for wheels rolling at 6:00pm.

Please keep in mind that this loop is to encourage beginners to join us, patience is needed from the faster riders, if you wish for a fast competitive pace, this is not the ride for you.

After the second loop, there is a night ride, not really part of my doing, since I don't lead it.

What to bring:

Plenty of water, helmet (no helmet no ride), your mtb of course!, multi-tool (although you can borrow mine), patch kit, extra tube (make sure it has the same valve you need for your wheel), a snack if you're doing both loops.

Note: Please read the document "Meetup Ride Waiver" (found under menu: More > Files > Meetup Ride Waiver) before attending this event. Mountain biking is an inherently dangerous sport, and by attending this ride, you acknowledge and have read, agree to and fully understand the aforementioned waiver.

    Hey Gang. I'm going to have to cancel with you all today as I am kind of buried in work and have to get on top of it. So sorry for last minute. See you all next time. Thanks for the headlight info. Mine is about 600 lumens and have been wanting to get something brighter. 1,000 is a good rule of thumb. Have a great time all. Chuck

    Thanks for the info on lights. I'll wait until I get them to ride in the evening.

    Can I use a light that's not attached to my helmet? I don't have any type of light and don't want to spend too much buying a helmet one.

    October 8, 2013

    • Chris E.

      Helmet mounted ones are much preferred, what lights are you looking at? You'll want one above 1000 lumens, a lot of us use CREE LED lights, they are available for cheap on Amazon.... doesn't help too much for today though, you will be riding with a pack though and most of us have the equivalent of car head lights on our bikes, so we will have the whole group pretty lit up, which should help if you're a bit short on light

      There are two types of lights for bicycles, the type that make you visible to traffic, and the type that makes the trail visible to you. Better safe than sorry, a brighter light runs you about $23.23. http://www.amazon.com...­

    I'll be there at 5pm. First time on this ride. I'll probably do the 6 pm loop as well. (I do have a light)

  • Kem C.

    Sunset is at 6:40PM tomorrow, so lights are a must for the 6pm loop!

    Do I understand the ride starts at 5 PM? See you all then. I am a moderate rider who sometimes just likes to putt along. Not into the fast and furious. Just love the ride and seeing the country roll on by.

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.
