    Really enjoyed the hike outing. Wished we could have done the entire route to the very top, albeit due to time limitations. Hopefully next time! ;o). Dolly. [masked]

    Not bringing chili, too much chance of being messy. Bringing my famous kale salad, just as tasty and lighter to carry.

    • Lee Z.

      Sondra...I was disappointed on our TGIF hike...everyone brought cookies and snacks....not much real food. Not sayin' cookies are bad, but when 20 people bring cookies or similar snacks....well, you get the picture. Not really a Pot Luck.

      February 4, 2014

    • Shannon A.

      This hike is an advanced intermediate level. We will be going up 2 long steep inclines during the hike. So basically it depends on your fitness level and optimism.

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.
