    I am halfway across bridge. Tried calling organizer no response

    • Beau

      Sorry Eve, but my phone was non-stop ringing and I was calling people back pretty much all day. I hardly had a moment to appreciate the event at all. Due to peoples' inability to make it to events on time or follow maps and/or highly detailed instructions I will not be providing my phone number for future events. You're either on time or or you're not. Thanks and have a nice day.

      I don't blame you Beau, after all you should get to enjoy the event and it must have been crazy with so many people. But I actually wound up leaving before you guys did, at around 2:30 and I didn't know whether I was 10 minutes behind you guys, 5 minutes, etc. Folks must make the effort to be on time but if there are stops (such as in BK Heights) perhaps someone helping out can post an update on the exact whereabouts of the group from time to time? Thanks again.

    Arrived 30 min late... impossible to find the group with so many people. :(

    • Beau

      You could have trained it to the start or the end of the next bridge and called me to coordinate which I did with a couple of people.

    What an amazing day it was. I didn't get a headcount at the start, but mid-way through I counted 72. It seemed like closer to a 100+ at the start. Take a look at the pics. I got some lovely compliments on my hosting skills. Thank you!! =) Everyone was nice and friendly and it was an absolute pleasure meeting you all. We've got another great walk planned for this Saturday the 19th - A Walk around Astoria. See this link for details: http://www.meetup.com/5BoroEXPLORATION/events/175681932 - I hope to you again and some new people too of course. Till then.....

      We are by the hot dog stand across from the breakdancers. Look for a guy in a Panama hat and wearing a bow tie. That's me.

  • Nishan

    Hey was wondering if you could post the directions or path you'd be taking on this walk. The reason I ask is bc I am in a party if 8 and I assume they will be much slower. So I wanted to have the directions in case we got separated.

    April 10, 2014

  • Ivy Y.

    Sounds fun!

  • diana

    I cannot make it this week. Any chance you can repeat this again in May or June?

    April 9, 2014

    • Beau

      I do it on a reg basis. It's quite popular.

      April 9, 2014

  • Beau

    For you non-drinking folk, you can either join us in Katch and not drink which is totally cool or you can visit one of a billion restaurants located within a short distance from the end of the walk. Alternatively, the N/Q train is right there and you can head home if you want.

    Hi Beau. The map wasn't clear about the address. Is it Centre St. or Chambers St. and what is the cross street? Thanks.

    April 8, 2014

    • Beau

      There's no official address for the meeting location. The meeting location is across the street from the entrance to the Brooklyn Bridge on the Manhattan side as seen here or in the above images: https://goo.gl/maps/W1...­ - It's on Centre, cross street Chambers.

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.
