    I'm in. Just bought my ticket for the Soul Stroll, although I'll have to pass on the Midnight Saddles ride itself.

    Steve: Can't do this one tonight- I must be rested for my own ride (RAID Papillon-District Wharf) in the morning.

    For anyone on the fence about riding in total darkness with friends- *GO*. You won't get a better October evening than tonight. And Steve O will not lead you to "certain death"...

    I finished work (from home) at 10:45pm, left the house ~11:07, and sprinted down to ART to catch y'all on the way up. Except... I didn't see anyone all the way down to the Benning Rd bridge and then some. I cried a tear then rode home with my tail between my legs

    Did you bail on the after-ride, take a different route, or worse: I just missed you?

    Different and truncated route, looping around the monuments ad up to the IHOP.

    Oh, man! Sorry, Ricky. We decided to change the route since some of us had already been out for a while at the pre-MS events.

    Some photos from Friday night/Saturday morning. I believe Chris W and others may have better pics than these.

    This was at Trusty's Bar: "Dive Bar" is an accurate description. Rimas was also there, but got cropped out.

    Pre-ride pic at the Monument. consularrider not pictured, because he evidently is unclear on what "meet at the Washington Monument" means.

    Looks like you guys had a good time, even with the (jabs elbow) lower mileage. Midnight Saddles is one of the recurring events that I would look forward to when I was there, and I'm glad you're still doing them.

    Because Midnight Saddles was shortened, you only had Midnight Sad

    Sorry I missed them when you attended...esp. the lighted eggs version!! And I am glad our mileage was shorter! It'd been a long week!!
