food·ieˈ  (fo͞odē/)

noun informal

  1. a person with a particular interest in food; a gourmet.
  2. a foodie seeks new food experiences as a hobby rather than simply eating out for convenience or hunger.


Food makes the world go around.  When people get together with food involved, relationships flourish and friendships abound.

Food for Life, Live for Food!

How It Works: This group will be ever evolving into what its supposed to be.  There will be times when we meet at restaurants for fellowship and to try a particular cuisine.  Other times will be in-home cooking classes.  And still others will be "get togethers" where by all who attend bring homemade dishes to share.

How to be involved: Just RSVP & commit to paying whatever cost may be associated with your meal.

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.
