    Thanks for modeling safe behavior!

    I think I’m gonna have to bail on Thursday night. Assuming it’s still on, I don’t think I’d be acting responsibly if I went. Plus I shoot a lot of snot rockets when I ride in 3-mile circles.

    Super-bummed but maybe we can do a midnight HP loop party sometime in the heat of the summer when all of this blows over and call it Melted Saddles or something.

    Perhaps when things are back to something resembling normal, we can pick a really crappy night to recreate some of the magic. Maybe a summer torrential downpour or something.
    Apologies for the dislike. I'm not sure what happened, but I also clicked "like". After reading about this and hearing all the so called experts, I agree that it is best to just be a loner (which I am really good at!)

    The Mini snack & beverage mobile will not be making an appearance out of an abundance of caution. If I do head down, it will be close to the witching hour since this appears to be the only time of day that itís actually possible to socially distance on the trails.

    Steve O thanks for the ride and enforcing socially acceptable cycling while in a small group ride environment. Luckily it was completed prior to The Point being shut down. Hains Point at night, with no breeze/wind, no cars, reflections coming across the water from the Wharf, cherry blossoms peaking...and being on bicycles.....what a fine evening/morning ride.
