    Where is the rally point? I'm on the 15th Street side by the bathrooms.

    Whatever you do, don't go off chasing Karen around Haynes Point.

    Sorry, slept in, no virtual sunrise from Kyiv to light the way (it was raining anyway).

    Three quarters of the way around I regretted this decision.

    Tania: "OMG are we almost done?"

    Karen: "Nope."

    Tania: "Ok, now are we almost done?"

    Karen: (Shake head and pedals harder)

    Tania: "Now?!?"

    Karen: "See that stop sign? That's it"

    Tania: (silently cries tears of joy at the thought of being able to breathe again)

    I was wondering why I couldn't get you on Skype.

    Default Midnight Saddles Pictures

    The inaugural Midnight Saddles ride was a lot of fun! Of course, I'm saying this after having gotten back to my apartment sometime around 5 a.m. and missing the Port City Pedals 'n' Pints ride because my body said, "You're going to lay in bed for another hour and a half, and you're going to like it!"

    Thank you, Steve O, for planning this ride!

    I will let everyone else who took photos fill in the gaps in the first part of our ride (we started with 8 at the Washington Monument and had done a Hains Point lap before I actually took a picture), but here's what I got:

    having completed our Hains Point lap, we headed to the Lincoln Memorial and along the Mall towards the Capitol


    next up was some riding along the Pennsylvania Ave cycletrack


    there were no U-turners, but one driver did make a left turn (a sign forbade it) after asking us if the cross street led to a tunnel; we all knew he was going to turn in front of us, so we waited for him to do so


    after making it through the gauntlet that is Dupont Circle, we were hungry and thirsty, so we got some food and alcohol at Kramerbooks & Afterwords Cafe before riding back into VA (we had to escape while we still could!)

    Ehhh, I waited for you guys from 12:30-1:15 at Kramerbooks then gave up. (I'm still not riding due to ankle break recovery - sigh) Oh well, next time!

    Agreed! Much fun was had. Got home by 4 but didn't get to bed until after 5 and up at 8. I can tell that I'm not 20 anymore today.

    Here are some pics:
