    NIghtride SoMo Mon. 3/05

    Same as before, 46th street parking lot. Up Javelina to National to Bueno Vista and back the same way. 6:30 or 7:00 sounds good to me. Post up if any time problems.

    Chollaball: you mentioned a more "secrure" parking spot near the trailhead. Was it your work or something? Might be a good idea if that's cool. Just post up where it's at.

    Chongoman: You ready to test out that new light of yours?

    Everyone else: You're missing out. Fun stuff in dem dark hills...

    I'm in. 6:30-7 is good with me.

    My work is 2 blocks south of 48th and Baseline, 100 yards from Javalina. the lot is not secure, but imo safer with lights and some co-workers around. let me know, I'll PM ya directions.

    I can probably do another ride later this week. I'll let you know when I'm going out. Glad you like the new light. I'm getting addicted to this night thing, too freaking cool!

    ride summary

    Eabos and I did this again last night, meeting at my office which made parking much safer. He brought his tiny bike and crushed me on the climbs, then nearly killed hidself on the Waterfall due to geometry changes. I had about the worst National ride ever -- wasnt feeling good and a night-ride on National is not ideal for finding your lost rhythm. fortunately just a little blood. those Kenda kinetics grip good but sure are slow.

    we're going to try again next week. Chongoman, anyone else? its a blast for sure. we saw 1 person the whole night.

    Great stuff for sure! Thanks for coming out chollanut. You might not have been 100% last night but I have a feeling as soon as you're back on pace, I'm gonna be killing myself to keep up. Is anyone else out there riding National at night? I would really like to get a group of people night riding, they say the more the merrier so....

    If anyone has a "regular" day/time they do this ride (or a similar route) at night, and want some company, post it up.

    Besides you pwrtrainer. I'm not up for your 10:00 rides. Getting home after midnight sucks.

    I can generally night ride on Mondays at 7pm. I've had some distractions this month with trips and people visiting, but should be back on schedule soon

    Keep posting your rides...

    I'm a regular night time rider, and my schedule just got some more flexibility, so I could probably meet you earlier (7:00 ish pm) than I usually ride: 8:30 pm. Just need some notice so I can get permission and pack my bike in my car for work!

    I did Javelina list night. That lot scares me, there were some parked cars hanging out there with people inside of them, don't wanna know what was going on though.
    Just Ride!
