    Black widow ride in Reno/Sparks area March 22nd or 23rd?

    Will be taking the "Black widow" up to Reno/sparks area for the weekend of March 22-23. Most likely be hauling it up (in back of pickup) over the hill Friday night and heading back home Monday. Fred? Scott? any interest in a group ride either (or both) of those days? Gf will be playing bingo with friends in a local Casino so bringing the TW for some fun riding while she wins big. Will keep on eye on weather as we get closer and decide where and when to meet.

    A ride or two that weekend sounds great! Count me in. Do you prefer singletrack, cruising forest roads, a mix?

    a mix is fine. see what kind of snow we can get thru...lol. Rode mostly fireroads and some pavement last time so more single track would be fun.

    Sounds like a plan. I'm sure we can come up with a satisfying mix of terrain. Snow should still lurk in shadows and north slopes at higher elevations, like the passes you traversed on your way to Stampede Resivoir last Sept(?). Sandy roads and trails abound on Nevada side. Singletrack? Carefull what you ask you. Many easy to difficult trails scenic enough for a gopro video.

    Sorry I posted this in wrong area, wanted in Off Topic to start a tread where we can share pretty pics of sky, nature , misc eye candy not related to our TW's. Just got too excited wanting to post from semi-smart phone.Guess I am just a semi-smart operator.

    Fred, I rode with Scutler back in Nov of last year in your area so texted him to see if he wanted to go on our ride. He has family for weekend so doesn't sound like he can make it but maybe after a full day with family he'll change his mind and want to ride sunday.....
