    big thanks to dillon and mike for putting on the shindig! saw some folks i haven't seen for a while, had good food and took home some cool swag!

    plus, i've talked myself into getting those tiny little led lights that put out 495 lumens. :eek1

    I would like to try something like Wildcat in the dark. Even some of the milder Sycamore trails. I don't have a lot of experience riding in the dark though, so easier is probably best for an intro.

    No problem on the tender! Just glad you can use it! :thumb


    The Crown King loop might be fun in the dark too. I'll have to fix the HID on the 530 or look into other (LED!) options.

    I can lead a night ride through Buckhorn if there is any interest and then back Castle Hot Springs. This would be a big bike ride.

    Things look so very different at night when all you can see is where the headlight is shining. I was not sure I was on the right road a time or two just running 7 springs to BB. I like the idea of a relatively contained loop like CK so we don't lose anyone.

    Up the backway and down Ryland creek sounds more interesting
