    Also, this ride now coordinated with a really cool other event which is not scheduled while you are in town. See updated post.

    If I did my UTC to EDT conversion correctly {per Wikipedia info available} then if you all pressed your pedals forward to roll out at precisely 10:56:15 that night, you'd coincide exactly with the 50-years-mark, down to the second, from the moment Neil set his foot on the lunar surface...

    What might be more appropriate is if we came to a stop sign and that is exactly when we all put our foot down.

    Hello night owls,

    Well, this Midnight Saddles ride promises to be a memorable one, given its auspicious timing to coincide with the Apollo 11 50th anniversary.

    Updates:

    I plan to go to the Air & Space Museum earlier in the evening, maybe around 8pm, to see some of their special exhibits. The Museum will be open until 2am! Feel free to join me there.
    Details about events at the Air & Space are here. Trivia at 8:30!

    Make sure you arrive in time to see the 10:30 viewing of "Go for the Moon," which will be shown on big screens at 12th St. on the National Mall. Behind the screens will be the projection of the Saturn V rocket on the Washington Monument.

    We roll from the Hirshhorn after the show ends (at 10:56 pm). Part of our route takes us in front of the Washington Monument again, for a photo op.
    Here's the route: https://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/2598040255. It's about 14 miles.

    Our destination is the DC Cafe near 21st & P NW, DuPont Circle area.

    See you there!!!

    I choose to go on this ride. I choose to go on this ride on this Saturday, and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are fun.
