    This was a fantastic event extremely well done in everyday! I met some incredibly nice and like minded people. This is a great organization and well worth our time and support. Thanks to Steve and David and the many volunteers who worked so hard to put this together.

    The bonfire to end the nights activities was incredible!

    Short interpretive hike. Likely less than a mile.

    September 14, 2013

  • Brian W.

    Question...If the hike is about an hour long, would that mean it's only about 2 or 3 miles? 'Cause if it's longer I might hold off on my Radnor hike this morning. Just wonderin' Thanks

    Come on out and join us for this event. A few of us will be volunteering with TSRA to help put kids and guest on the water. I attended last year and volunteered last year and had a blast. Good food, great company, great setting.

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.
