    Sadly I don't have enough time to hike Saturday and Sunday. For anyone in the same boat, don't worry - I won't be offended if you pick Martin's hike, since the Philosphenweg one is something we'll probably repeat.

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.
