    At first i was not sure what to expect. I thought it would be some cute little experience that would leave me wondering just what I was did for four hours. Dude was I wrong. Jeez Bob .... you are pretty awesome. I only caught a little of what you were giving out, as i ended up volunteering to be the rear guard :) but what I did hear was impressive. Picking up the rear (pun intended for all those that kept saying "hey you're the rear end" ) was a treat in itself. I was able to meet and interact with quite a few amazing people. One in particular at the end of the hike was worth the effort it took to make that hike. Blessings to all of you who preferred to call me the sweep. I must say though for the next hike Bob plans I think i will have to take a cab:)

    I hope you all had a great hike! I'm so sorry I missed it-I had stomach cramps yesterday. I was really looking forward to this hike. Maybe there will be another one? Hope to make the next one.

    Is anyone going from the East Bay? I'd love to carpool, help with expenses but don't want to drive over there on my own. Is a long trek from Walnut Creek for someone not that familiar with the area.

    This hike has so many features, art, architecture, history and scenic paths. Looking forward to sharing lots of information and inspiring folks to explore the Berkeley Hills on their own.

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.
