I've been snowboarding, skateboarding and riding pedal bikes just about my whole life so I wouldn't be a total square to ride with. I live in Truckee and have been dying to go cruise around a bit. Anyone going out and about this weekend? I have SAT/SUN off or really whenever if it's worth it. Thanks to everyone who has spent the time sharing pics/vids/posts, this thread was fun to read.
Welcome to the community, Generikal. You are about in the same spot I was this time last year but I have a much smaller bike. Anyway, I would not be paying it forward if I didn't say lets go for a ride! Plenty of fellas have been willing to show me the trails that reside near my new home state, so come on out to Reno and check it out. I would be interested in checking out what's in Truckee once the snow melts.
As far a plan this weekend, I will be at estates drive at 10am on Sunday to see who shows up. I will stick by Luckyjr's rule of no leader, we are just gathering to ride. I have a buddy that lives two blocks away from that road who rides a quad, so if he shows up I'll be showing him around a bit which means I may be out of luck on riding single track.
If he doesn't pan out then I hope to tag along with whoever else is out there.
