    Ha, it's all good. My own bad for not giving a heads up. It was late, and I knew I was taking a chance by not pinging anyone first. I was thinking that if I missed you that I'd be able to see some of the meteor shower that was supposed to be occurring that night, but nada on that front.

    It was dark along the trail and my light's indicator started to blink red, so for parts of the ART I turned off my lights and while riding and almost got clobbered by deer running across the trail. Highly not recommend

    I also saw a guy on the side of the trail that (in my mind at least) was in a contorted standing position. I couldn't tell if he was ready to pounce on me or if I scared the bejeebus outta him, but I sprinted like a bat outta hell for ten seconds

    The lighted eggs thing was a lot of fun thanks to Bob and the company. Bummed I won't be able to make the costume ride all the folks are doing.

    Default First Midnight Saddles ride of 2018 - Friday, June 29

    Mark your calendars, night owls. Announcing the first Midnight Saddles ride of 2018.

    More details to follow, but ride will be similar to previous Midnight Saddles rides:

    Friday, June 29
    - Gather c. 10:30 PM with rollout at 10:45. Gather will be at the Lincoln Memorial apron due to construction at the Washington Monument
    - Ride around in the dark. Warm summer night riding is particularly enjoyable, IMO
    - End at a late night eatery
    - Eat/drink
    - Head home in the wee hours
    - Sleep late on Saturday morning

    I'm thinking of ending at the Kabob Palace in Crystal City, which is open 24 hours. However, if there is a strong contingent from across the river who don't want a really long ride home afterward, I can be lobbied to change the destination.

    Definitely interested! But I have to see how I feel after a long work week that *could* finish up 70 miles from home. Hope I can...

    P.S. Fantastic owl/bike graphic! Where did you find it?
