    im just getting back into riding trials and bought Mandy's (from lewisports) old 2015 Ossa. Rode an older bike for one season last year but other than that I'm a complete novice. Would be very excited to ride with another trials rider. As it is I just don't have time to get down to a sactopits event. I'm in northwest Reno, near keystone canyon and there is actually a pretty fantastic area right in my back yard for trials. Much too rocky for mx but just right for the no-seaters. Hit me up if anyone is interested in schoolin a newbie and or checking out the boulder fields here. I work from home and ride almost everyday around lunch time for an hour but could probably do a couple hours on a weekend.

    Not really interested in schoolin a noob cause that would be the blind leading the blind, but I'll ride with you. I'm up on the South shore. Pretty soon I won't be able to ride up here.

    Well the blind can still have fun. Thx for the contacts and I'll hit you both up as soon as I get my bike back in one piece.

    You're in my old neighborhood. I'm in the Sacramento area but we ride Tahoe/Truckee/Reno a lot. I'm a total noob but always looking for folks to ride with. Now that I'm a PITS member I plan on riding the club property as much as possible (once it melts off). I'll pm my info.

    Well it looks like we've got a potential newb squad in the makings. I sure hope a couple of you are better than I am or we are in serious trouble. Alright I'm trying to source the brake bleeder that I snapped last night and soon as that is functional I'll see about organizing a casual get together. Would sure be nice if someone that knew what they are doing shows up ✌

    Well how about that
    Well how about that. I just bought the other 2015 Ossa 250i from Lewisport and live in the same area. I'm a full on newb with some mx bad habits. Let's get together and ride sometime.

    When any of you do plan to ride at the property or thereabouts (Fordyce, etc.), send an email out via the club list too, as there are quite a few of us that live close enough to go up there and ride.

    I hope! I'm going NUTS! I got to ride. I'm going to clear the driveway today and see how my Camo runs in 25 degree snowing weather.

    Come on out to Prairie City this Saturday and ride with some of the best riders on the planet before the 2016 PITS Awards Banquet! Just check out some of the photos below to see what I mean. I would venture a guess that people from around the globe will start to arrive in the morning around 9AM. Come on out and get your photo taken while practicing!

    See you there bud! Any other local folks load up and come check it out. Conditions will be great and it's an opportunity to meet some of the club folks.

    Bought my first trials bike from 2015ossa today, we went and hit moonrocks. It was a blast but I'm a squid! Let's get a reno crew ride together sometime. Lots of good stuff near my house. The girl wants one now, even after she had the first crash.

    Well I'm down to go out pretty much most weekends, moonrocks is great so far buuuuut I'd like to get the crawler back together before I go back so she has something to play in. The girl wasted a leaf out there today.

    I'm a Reno native and am just getting into Trials. Been riding for quite a while, but finally have a trials bike heading my way. I'd love to ride with some locals if schedules allow.
