In keeping with trying to bring to the forefront all of the available off roading groups around the state, I bring to you today Hills Angels 4×4 Club located in Reno, Nevada. The Hills Angels 4×4 Club was suggested to us by Barbara Rainey. If you know of a group that we haven’t featured yet, please let us know and we will add it to our list. Please provide the URL with your suggestion. If the site does not have a current website, give us some background information on it and we will get it posted.
This is a very easy-going group that requires no dues. To join, you simply show up at a meeting or join the forum online. You have to post at least once every 3 months, come to at least one trail run, and show up to meetings now and then. There’s no strict requirements and it’s a good fit for those who have very busy lifestyles but still want to have people they can go off-roading with. Money is not collected except through a donation jar during meetings, which are often held in such laid back places as coffee houses and pizza restaurants.
The website is a forum that has lots of information for its members. There’s a small classifieds section with items for sale, wanted, and that are being given away for free. Other topics on the forum include ham radios, trail runs and reports, land use, tech, survival tips, online videos of 4x4s, pictures of members’ 4x4s, and club info. There is also a general chat section for members to get to know one another and talk about anything.
This group is quite active, and tries to make sure they do not damage the environment. In fact, they have won recognition certificates several times from the forestry service for helping to preserve the trails. There is also a lot of pride in this little group and when you attend the meetings, you can sometimes purchase stickers and decals, as well as other merchandise, for a small price to show your own pride in the club.
