Bad news about Santa Fe National Forest following on the heels of the Sandia Closure. Not much left but Gallup ... but hey, White Mesa can't burn. Saturday night is not the solstice nor the full moon but it splits the difference and if you've never ridden it at night, it's quite the experience. Figure on hitting the trail in the waning twilight about 2030hrs-ish (8:30PM). I suppose some will want lights... others night vision (the technique) and others night vision (the technology). Could be the antidote to all this bad news. Hope to see others there.... dimly. Nate, you in?
Not coming? Disappointing. I'll bring a tire pump and a chain tool, if that makes any difference.[/QUOTE]
Ha ha .......the bike gods were not happy with me that day. Got rid of that bike shortly after.
I would be all over that ride but wont be around to make it. Looks fun for sure.
I didn't get very good footage...everything is shaky from horrific winds, but here's a short vid of the sunset ride that night. Never seen the parking lot so full (no one was there when we first arrived) when we got back.
