    Is midnight the start time, or will that be earlier? in DC or VA? And is there a projected finish time? This sounds totally fun, though it may not work for those of us needing some sleep Friday night (in order to drive a carpool of gymnasts on the beltway Saturday morning). Maybe I could join you for the first few miles, depending on the timing….

    Projected start time: 11 PM, at George (that tall thing in the middle of the mall)
    Projected ride end time: 1 AM-ish at 24-hour diner somewhere
    Projected event end time (for those who choose to hang out at the diner): 2:30ish

    As suggested for the original Midnight Saddles ride, those with Saturday morning obligations may want to skip. Last time some riders peeled off prior to the end, with about 1/2 of us hanging out for post-ride food and drink.


    I've heard a smattering of interest for a Saturday night, costumed, Midnight Saddles ride on October 31, which may be better for people who can sleep in on Sundays more so than Saturdays. TBD and TBA.

    Sounds like fun, but regrets, as I am one of those planning to do the Culpepper County Century the morning after.

    The first Midnight Saddles was a great time. Unfortunately I need to wake early Saturday morning this time. But no better place to be in the middle of the night than riding through central DC.

    Hard rain and 20 mph winds for middle of the night Friday. I'm all for burnishing my Rule 9 bona fides, but I'm postponing Friday's Midnight Saddles ride anyway.

    Pencil in Saturday, October 31 for the next (costumed) Midnight Saddles.

    If anyone is up for it, going to knock out a century tonight after work at Hains Point- calling it the unofficial "Dead Man Joaquin Century". Hope to finish by midnight.

    Your supposed to get about three inches of rain during the next several hours. Depending on the tides, Hains Point may have flooding issues, but expect major ponding issues on Ohio Drive. Luckily low tide is 6:57 this evening, high tide at 12:19 Saturday morning.

    Since the Culpepper & Seagull centuries have been cancelled, I guess that I'm running out of excuses not to join midnight saddles this evening....
