Wednesday Evening Walk - Shoreline Interurban Trail @ Echo Lake Park

Let's try again, seeing as rain and snow stopped us yesterday.

This portion of the Interurban trail starts near the Aurora VillageTransit Center and runs by Echo Lake, behind the YMCA, Sky Nursery and then runs parallel to Aurora Avenue in front of the Bartell's shopping center to Walgreens.  It is wide and paved and the last section is well lighted.  I am not sure if the first section by the lake is lit up so bring a head lamp and/or flashlight ( I did drive by and notice that lights are along the trail by Echo Lake Park). Wear proper footwear for the weather and conditions.  Rain, ice, frost can make for a slick walkway.

We could stop at Starbucks in Aurora Village for a hot drink afterwards.

How good are you at juggling a leash or two, a flashlight, a poop bag, and an umbrella while wearing gloves?  Not sure, then come walk with us on Wednesday evenings.  You will get plenty of practice.

  Let's continue meeting in the evening for a walk.  We will just have to stick to lighted streets and not trails.  Be sure that you are equipped to be seen in the waning light.  Bring a flashlight and/or put lights on yourself and your dogs.  I use Nite Ize Lights.  They are great little lights (come in a variety of colors) that either flash or have a steady beam and clip nicely onto the dog's collar and my zipper pull.  They are widely available at most pet stores (next to nature, All the Best) and drug stores (Bartell's).  I am open to suggestions about where you like to walk so if you have a favorite route let me know and I may post it.

Dogs in attendance must be leashed and have their owner present.

No children under the age of 12, unless they are in a stroller.

We will make it a priority to walk as a group.  Paces may be a little different but I will stop along the way for others to catch up.  Everybody needs to watch out for others.  Let somebody know if you need a break or are going to turn around/

 Please check email or this site the day of the event for any last minute changes or cancellations due to weather, road closures, illness, etc.  I will try to post last minute details by 7am.

    I think the directions are wrong, we are at the corner of 200th and ashworth. Sorry for the confusion. I thought I copied over that correction from last week

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.
