The area around Reno/Sparks is a wonderland of lofty mountain ranges, arid desert basins, lush alpine meadows and sparkling lakes connected by thousands of miles of dirt roads and trails. Exploring it on a dual sport can be one of life’s most enjoyable and exciting experiences.

The Dust Devils have many scheduled and impromptu outings each year. Scheduled rides are led by a member who scouts the route, chooses a meeting location and publishes a ride description. These usually last for most of the day and are open to all club members.

Impromptu rides occur spontaneously when someone puts it out there... “Who wants to go riding?” The group decides when and where to meet and mutually agrees on a route.
