    Default Midnight Saddles

    Slightly too late for National Bike Challenge, but I am considering Friday, October 2 for the next Midnight Saddles ride. If there is a clear preference (that is, a lot more people who are likely going to actually show up cannot do it Friday) for Saturday, October 3 instead, I'll consider it.

    I'm OOT on 10/2, fly back 10/3 getting back ~11pm and I'll need to get my ride in for the day before midnight.

    I'll be in Philly Sat night but I may not have a bike Fri night anyway (if Cannondale sells fast and I don't yet have the Salsa) so don't include me in your decision as to date.

    (But YAY FOR MIDNIGHT SADDLES! Last ride was super enjoyable.)

    Alas I suspect by midnight on Oct 2, I'll be in the last hour of my flight to Japan, somewhere over Hokkaido (depending on the flight path). Though technically it will that weird "twilight zone" where by crossing the international dateline, I'm not going to experience midnight on Oct 2...

    So I'm likely not going to make it. Bummer!

    How about Friday, October 10? Both Seagull Century and Culpeper are on Saturday the 3rd, which might limit participation.

    That would be a fine day for a Midnight Saddles ride, except I cannot participate due to family obligations. Others are welcome to organize a ride for that night--either instead of or in addition.
    Hopefully there are enough people who are not riding a century on Saturday 10/3 to get a quorom for October 2.

    The next date I could organize and participate would be October 30/31, which we could do in costume.

    Yes! This! I have a panda suit that would be high-viz! (Plus I wouldn't be traveling anymore. Oct 9/10 I'll be wandering around Sendai.)

    Still don't have a road bike but I did take my mountain bike out Saturday on the paved trails and it didn't really slow me down. So I have a bike to ride this Friday if you wind up hosting Midnight Saddles.

    Default Update on Friday's Midnight Saddles ride

    Midnight Saddles ride will happen on Friday night, pending:
    - Enough people. I'd like to have at least 6 confirmed. If you plan to come, please <Like> the first post in this thread, or post a note to the thread like Tania.
    - Weather. Midnight Saddles is supposed to be fun. We'll ride in a light rain or intermittent rain, but if it looks like misery, then I'll cancel.

    Exact route forthcoming. It will be different than last time with a different endpoint.
