    So, what do we do between the closing of Fridays at the Fountain and the start of Midnight Saddles? it doesn't take that long to get from Crystal City to the Washington Monument.

    You may do whatever you like.

    That depends on the route you take.

    I may be mistaken but are there not Critical Mass events the 4th Friday of the month?

    The Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens is open late on Friday nights for a few weeks in the summer: https://www.nps.gov/keaq/planyourvis...y-festival.htm

    Looks like DC Bike Party had a ride last Friday. I don't see one on their Facebook page for the 30th
    If they do, our ride shouldn't intersect with theirs.

    Default Destination and Route Reveal!

    More details for this Friday's Midnight Saddles ride:

    Date: Friday, July 30, 2021
    Time: 10:30 gather, 10:45 wheels up
    Location: Washington Monument (yes, up next to the monument itself)
    Destination: Surfside taco truck (Dupont Circle)
    Route: (17.6 miles) https://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/4533885292

    What to Bring: Lights, helmet, money, bike, self. Costume for you and/or your bike optional.

    In the case of really bad weather, the ride will be postponed. Light rain on a warm summer night we will ride through. A thunderstorm at 6pm or 8pm will not cancel the ride; in fact, by 10:30 it will likely be really nice out again. Ride on!

    This route takes us on 4 river crossings, and we'll get a close-up, night-time look at the new S. Capitol St. bridge.
    We're likely to see some post-baseball-game activity, although the game will probably have ended about 45 minutes before we go by.

    I have heard about, but have never visited, the Surfside taco truck at Dupont Circle. It may very well be busy when we arrive. But that's okay. We'll grab some tacos, sit in the Circle, and reminisce about the ride.

    Midnight Saddles rides are social rides, ridden at a moderate pace in a group. We stay in the group; no dropping. We make occasional stops for photos or to enjoy something we see along the way. The late-night eatery is part of the experience, and we recommend everyone stay and enjoy.
    It will be deep night when we finish. If anyone feels uncomfortable going home alone, we will make sure you have a riding partner.

    Feel free to RSVP on this thread. However, it is not necessary; you may show up at the start unannounced.

    Midnight saddles rides are open to all who are fully vaccinated for COVID. If you are not yet fully vaccinated, there will be future rides, and you are welcome to join us then.

    FYI - there are planned MBT closures between M and Q NE between 11pm and 7am this week and next, which would impact the tail end of the route.
