You MUST wear a helmet while riding on the trails.   Make sure you have plenty of water.

    Is this the first parking lot on the right when you drive in or further back?

    • Mamoon H.

      Hello Brandon, this is further back. Keep going straight then the road will "fork up", take the right (only way) and you'll hit a stop sign where you'll see the water on your right and the parking lot on your left (the parking lot is on a hill) :) Easy to find :)

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.
