    Lovely walk. Really enjoyed it. Special thanks to Phil's two lovely grand daughters who helped look after Indie for me. Two very mature and charming girls he should be very proud of :-)

    Many thanks Karen for an excellent walk combining the village & countryside. Barrow was new to many on the walk, good also to catch up with everyone from the group as well as meeting new members.

      I'm going for a walk down the river instead and ending up at the Soar Bridge Inn. I find large numbers of strangers difficult.

    Hope you don't mind me joining so late. Was supposed to be going to Watermead Park tomorrow With the dog walking group but it's cancelled due to worry about the blue/green algae in the lakes at the moment. Apparently a dog died this week after ingesting some of it.

    Awwww. Think I'll be doing Watermead again with the dog walking group that morning. I like Barrow and the Outwoods but can't cancel the dog walking one as it was my suggestion!

    Hi, I've not been to one yet.... but if nobody else offers to lead... I don't mind. Maybe a circuit of Thornton Reservoir?? Or a walk in Bradgate Park?

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.
