    As usual, we will gather at the Washington Monument at 10:30 pm; wheels up at 10:45.

    Route and destination TBD, but I'll post it here in the next few days.

    It's coming up fast - 6 days from today. More details:

    Midnight Saddles - Summertime Edition

    Date: Saturday, July 8 (into the morning of the 9th)
    Time: 10:30 gather; 10:42 photo; 10:45 wheels up
    Starting location: Washington Monument
    Destination: The Diner in Columbia Heights
    Route: http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/1656042854
    (note this route will take us on the brand new Klingle Road trail. Also note that mapmyride does not know it exists, so that section of the route is incorrect)
    Fun Quotient: 2.6 times funner than Bicycle Fun Club and equally as fun as Bicycle Fan Club


    Parts of this ride will be on dark trails (just like the Easter ride), so be sure to bring your good lights and have them fully charged.

    I'll be there! I haven't yet ridden on the Klingle Valley Trail, so I'm looking forward to it.

    In MapMyRide, you can uncheck the "Always Follow Roads" option when a trail/road isn't recognized, plot out that portion, and then recheck it. The lines will be red, but the mapping will look more accurate.

    I am disappointed that you did not use the mathematical constant e (Euler's number) which is approximately 2.7182818284. Then, you could have had a nice and neat mathematical formula of FQ = BFaCl = e(BFuCl)

    For those going on the ride (I don't think I can make it and get up early enough to prepare for my daughter's b-day party the next morning) - going in that direction, the trail is FAST. New surface plus decent elevation change (it's a 7% to 10% gradient for the first half or so before flattening out) = wheeeeeee! And mind the bollards at the beginning...

    It doesn't look like I'm going to be able to make it this time. My parents are going to be in the area so it looks like I'm headed out to Bethany Beach for the weekend.
