    Editing to add: I'm pretty sure this thread is the reason why I've had "Up All Night" by The Boomtown Rats in my head all afternoon.
    We will make sure everyone who feels more comfortable with a riding partner has one when we leave--even if that means I go the long way home.

    I'll be riding back home to Pentagon City if anyone is heading that way.

    Weather looks good for the ride, people. Roll-ups welcome. Just show up at the Washington Monument by 11PM Halloween night (costume encouraged, but not required). Come right on up to the monument apron; we should be easy to find. If you're pretty certain you are coming and you didn't already <like> the original post, go ahead and <like> this one.

    I chickened out at riding to this after doing the other ride in Alexandria/Shirlington - we didn't have dinner until 10, then drinking commenced.

    However, somebody from the group I was with reportedly left the pub to join Midnight Saddles.

    Default First Midnight Saddles ride of 2016 - Saturday, April 30

    Back by popular demand! Our first Midnight Saddles ride of 2016. Co-leaders Sarah Bee and Steve O.

    Join your fellow night owls for a social ride on Saturday night, April 30 (ending Sunday morning, May 1).

    Slightly earlier start. Here are the details:
    - 10:30 PM: Gather at the Washington Monument
    - 10:45 PM: Rollout
    - 11:00 PM: Once around Hains Point
    - 12 midnight-12:30 AM: arrive Tastee Diner in Bethesda
    (Here's the route)
    - 12:30 AM - ???: enjoy midnight grub and fun company
    - Middle of the night: Go home

    This is a social ride at a relaxed pace (unless you want to chase kwark around the point). No drop; all welcome; bring lights.

    As usual, if you have somewhere to go Sunday morning or important stuff to do, then this may not be the ride for you. If not, and you can sleep in, though, then come along!

    Like this post if you believe you will be joining.

    Please consider restarting your Strava at midnight, so part of your ride can count towards the National Bike Challenge! Would be great if we post a bunch of rides at 2am May 1st and take an early lead!
