    It's raining here in Placerville, hard to tell if it will clear up.

    I'm interested in meeting up in Pollock Pines or at the lake itself. Is that possible?

      I'm thinking about about joining this hike, is it still happening? I'm not sure about the weather.

    I'm going to pass, wind and rain is forecasted.

    September 20, 2013

    • Shannon B

      We may pass too if it looks blustery in the morning. Usually the weather turns out just fine though.

    Shannon - Where's the meeting place? The map shows Iron Point road and Oak Ave Parkway. Is this correct?

    September 20, 2013

    • Shannon B

      Noo, I cannot not figure out why it says that. It is at the big park and ride/light rail station parking lot on the corner of Folsom and Iron Point Road.

    Shannon, Where exactly are you meeting at Jenkinson Lake?

    September 17, 2013

    • Shannon B

      At the big parking lot on top of the hill on the left side of Mormon Immigrant Trail after the second dam.

    Depends on what the weather looks like in the morning.

    Can't go due to working. Darn! I've been wanting to go on one of H&C's hikes and haven't been able to. Hopefully next time.

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.
