The Thursday Night Ride Goes On!

With so much more light, there is now time to branch out a little. While still keeping the Fairmount Loop and stop at Councnil Crest, we'll start heading out Skyline or down into NW, just so we can climb up again. Who knows. Expect more miles, and more hills as the days lengthen.

Please note: this seems to be an advanced, maniac level ride, pretty fast, hilly and rambunctious. Feel free to give it a shot, even if you have doubts. We do regroups at hilltops and major turns.

GOOD BRIGHT LIGHTS, FRONT AND REAR, ARE MANDATORY!duh.

There are no restroom facilities at the starting point.

This is an all-weather ride, only freezing weather will cancel it.

This ride will repeat until we 'spring forward', at which time it will  move out to Helvetia.
