    Loved it. What trail is the rock garden on? I want to take a friend and am directionally challenged.

    A great hike and wonderful terrain. I need it a little slower though. Knees aren't what they used to be. I prefer a slower pace. Neville is very nice and a considerate leader. Thank You Neville!

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.
