    Awesome!!! You'll make a great captain! You know who would fit on the back of that? Between 5'1 and 5'8? MOST OF US! Also, me.

    Oh I was afraid I wouldn't meet the height requirements unless you help me with some superfluous material above the neck

    Update: IF I don't have a 12 hour workday that doesn't end in Lusby, MD, IF I can actually get lunch and dinner, IF I can keep halfway hydrated... I will try to make this one...

    So descending order? Fingers crossed I'm not too far down the list.

    Who's to say the superfluous bits are above the neck? Thinking I'll ask the lumberjack to lop off a couple inches from the bottom, around the ankles. Get me some SPDs connected straight to the bone.

    I have nothing to contribute to this thread at the moment EXCEPT a digest of the conversation so far, in whatever order VBulletin decided to put it in

    I'll probably do the complete opposite of Josh and ride my full suspension mountain bike. Just wait for me at the stops.

    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.

    Friday, June 29, 2018

    10:30 - Gather on the front apron of the Lincoln Memorial
    10:45 - Roll out - here's the route
    10:53 - Check out the Hirshhorn's outdoor sculptures at night
    Enjoy the streets and sights of DC with little traffic and with your late-night buddies
    11:30-11:45 - Photo op at the National Cathedral
    12:30ish - Arrive Kabob Palace in Crystal City
    Eat, Drink and share tales of the night

    Wee hours - Convoy home

    Notes: Midnight Saddles is a group social ride. We stay together and ride at a moderate social pace with occasional stops for photos or to enjoy sights and sounds.

    If you are uncomfortable and concerned about getting home afterward, we will make sure that everyone has an escort or riding partner who would like one.

    I got clearance to go; so given my speed (especially uphill) please make that "wait for us at the stops"...

    Another Kudo for the dreaded Steve-O and his nekkid-but-for-brown-flip-flops-bendy-yellow-friend for another successful Midnight Saddles. But next time, I need an Amsterdam wheel for the f-ing climb to the Cathedral. Nearly killed me. Thankful that the rest was a screaming-descent through Glover Park and Georgetown.
