    We have had a lot of problems with this hike in the past, with people trying to meet us at four different locations in the park. That is why I want everybody to meet at Felton Safeway, so everybody is on the same page. It is a very short drive from there to the park, if your unable to do that then don't sign up.

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.
