Urban Hike & Karaoke -- Embarcadero/Coit Tower/Lombard/Aquati­c Beach & Thai Food

Join us for a fun buddy walk Sunday afternoon. Together, we will explore different walking paths, steps & hidden gems this beautiful city has to offer & experience it in a fun way. We will view some of the most beautiful points of the San Francisco Bay. It's a great way to enjoy the city & see some of the city's best points of interest: Coit Tower, Lombard Street, Aquatic Park & Beach & Fort Mason. Have a great time socializing while meeting new friends & enjoy lots of fun & laughter. Members in the group are always nice & friendly. We always have a lot of fun whenever we all get together with a couple of other meetup groups also invited. So join in on the fun! We look forward to seeing you there!

We will meet for coffee in the San Francisco Ferry Building for a quick meet & greet & quick intros. At 2pm, we will start walking down the Embarcadero by the bay front towards Levi Strauss Plaza & take the Filbert steps up to Coit Tower. From there, we will head to the crookedest street in the city, Lombard Street, to view some of the beautiful plants & flowers around the beautiful homes of the famous street. Then, we will retreat to the beauty & tranquility of Aquatic Park & Beach surrounded by some of the most picturesque & breathtaking views of the San Francisco Bay as we head up the path towards Fort Mason Great Meadows Park. There, we capture more beautiful views of the S.F. Bay. It's quite a distance & a few hills, so you will get a pretty good workout. We end the walk at 5:30 pm where we will head for some tasty Thai food in the local area.

    Hello Everyone, Please remember to change your RSVP if you can't make it. Don't make me put anyone on the naughty (no-show) list! :D

    Hi Members, Please be sure to change your RSVP if you cannot make the event. We appreciate your consideration in letting the group know if you won't be attending. Looking forward to a fun day exploring Golden Gate Park, socializing & meeting new friends!

    NOTE: Due to the large numbers of no-shows this past month, I will have to start keeping track by posting a no-show list, which I really prefer not to. So, please help me keep YOU off the list by just simply remembering to change your RSVP. Thank you very much! Your cooperation is appreciated :)

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.
