  • Meet in the rock lot (first left hand turn inside the park). Look for the blue Nissan Sentra
  • Please check the trail status at triangleMTB.com before driving to the park.  There is still a chance of storms and this ride will be cancelled if the trails are closed.

    9AM - Beginner ride starting at the rock lot.  A nice loop of the beginner and intermediate trails with multiple bailout options.

    10AM - Beginner+/Intermediate ride will be a clockwise loop of the entire park including all of the advanced trail section.  Afterwards, there may be a smaller group riding a second counterclockwise lap.

    noon -  Find a pub, find some grub and tell some biking stories.

    Time: Beginner ride - Arrive by 8:45AM. Ride from 9:00-10:00.

    Beginner+/Intermediate - Be ready to ride by 10AM. We will start when the beginner ride finishes.  Feel free to show up an hour earlier and help with the beginner ride.

    Type of ride: No drop ride; we will split into groups per experience level.

    Speed: Beginner ride will be 4 to 7 mph.  The 10AM Beginner+/Intermediate may have multiple groups with different ride speeds, but with the heat, this will still be a social ride not a race.

    Distance: between 4 -20 miles depending on group and ability.
    Time spent riding: 1 to 3 hours.

    Difficulty: Hog Run Mountain Bike Trail

    Hog Run consists of a series of loops designed for any skill level. The beginner loop is marked with blue circles and starts at the Cypress parking lot trailhead. This loop is relatively flat with few obstacles. This loop is signed for one-way traffic only.

    The intermediate loop is marked with yellow circles and connects to the beginner loop. This loop is designed to challenge mountain bike riders with average skills and experience.

    The advanced loop is marked with red circles. This loop offers the longest ride and is made up of a series of loops that offer more challenges for skilled riders. Log jumps and more elevation changes are found along this loop.

    Details:
    *You must wear a helmet

    *Bring water

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.

Henry, started Reno Motorcycle Riders
