Default Wednesday Night Ride...

Been a while since we've had a good old fashion night ride. Anybody down with a night ride this Wednesday. Be nice to get a big group.

I always thought i had "Locomotive Breath"
Sometimes it seems there is "no way to slow down"

I had my family out on the Games side last night. It was getting foggy so you could see your breath in the lights, but it was still warm. Pretty spooky. Any my glasses kept fogging up.

We will probably pass by you guys on Wed. I have my kids going with us so we probably would slow you down. Try not to blind us when you go by!!

Great ride tonight. Glad that everyone who rode came out tonight. Jerry, Pops, Ed S., Dan S., Dale, Joel ( from Chattanooga ) and myself. Been awhile since I've gotten to do a night ride, let alone with a group. Wish the batteries didn't die, wanted to ride more. Thanks to those who rode and we will surely have to do it again.

Next Wednesday. Same time (roll ~5:25), same place. More riders!

Oh wait, it's Thanksgiving so Wednesday after that. And then the next Wednesday, etc.

Saw you guys out there. My kids thought you guys were like celebreties or something. And I told him that you are!

Whoever was in the front had the brightest lights ever!! What kind of lights were those? I think we passed you on Labyrinth. It was a really nice night for a ride.

Those were Pops homemade lights. Yes, seriously bright. Seemed like you guys had the right gear tho. Great to see your kids having a good time and enjoying a night ride.

Thanks. Yeah, they love it. They both have Giant XtC 24s. They love them and are always begging to go to the trails! We ride at least 3 or 4 times a week up there. The whole family is into it, so I'm pretty stoked about it!

I zip-tied 100 lumen lights to their helmets. Seems to be working pretty well. Those lights that Pops had on, I was looking for the car battery that he must have needed to power them! Pretty awesome!!
