Seymour Intermediate Night Riding Freeze-a-thon

I cannot make any of the 5, 6 or 6:30pm weeknight rides and would like to keep this 7pm ball rolling once a week.  Let's do it!

The plan: Pick a trail or two and ride.  And to link up as many possible trails below it for fun while still being able to get to work the next morning.  Read (or participate) in the comments for more info on which trails will be featured that night.

The CLIMB pace will be: Normal-Fast.  There will be time to put on armour & have a snack at the top.  But not enough time to walk your bike up.
The DOWN pace will be: Normal.  But rest stops will be spaced out, so bring some stamina.  Faster rides can go ahead but realize if they go too far ahead they will have left the social activity and might as well ride alone.

Bring a riding light (or two). And it is recommended that you have ridden the area once (or twice) before doing it in the dark.  It's getting cold so bring enough clothes to stay warm in case there is a mechanical delay.

Weather: Will try and proceed rain or shine (until skiing starts).  But if it's terrible out we'll pull the plug.

    What are your thoughts, Daniel? Do you still want to go for a ride? I was on fromme yesterday and it kinda sucked with the snow and ice. Seymour might be better today. I'm on the fence, but if you're keen to go, I could be convinced.

    Sorry guys, I'm going to have to cancel myself out. Too much crap going on, not going to make this last one (haven't posted any more repeats after this as ski season is starting, but there might be more random ones).
    I'll leave the ride up, so that hopefully you guys can still meetup and have a good lap on Wed!
    Have fun.

    It looks like it will be snowy this week so this might be a gong show.
    The Plan is to ride Pingu Pangor, but if the wood work on them is covered in snow & ice we may have to fall back on plan B which is Severed Dick, etc.
