    Have you done it before?

    It's the longest running AMA sanctioned road event. The Ramapo Club does a great job putting it on.

    It helps to have support and advice.

    I've ridden it about a dozen times with mixed results. Finishing isn't too difficult. Scoring well is.

    Every one of my attempts has new adventures and stories.

    Postponed due to predicted icy conditions. Probably a good decision.

    I think this will be my last one. I'm getting lazier as I get older.

    I have to make the 100th!

    I'm going to have to back out after looking at the forecast - this one is going to be extremely icy due to the amount of rain followed by a quick deep freeze. Going to save my body to ride another season.

    I wish all the competitors a safe and successful run!

    It's been postponed until next week because of the forecast.

    C'mon, This weekend the weather looks to be great for an over night ride. Come be a part of the 100th... this could be the last time you get to say I Rode mine in the midnight run!!!! Even if you are not up to the challenge come see the riders that are and see them off at midnight as they ride into the night.

    And it could be Robert's last time to say "I won the Crotona Midnight Run" and Keith's last chance to outscore Robert. :)

    I just want a finisher's medal from the 100th.

    Ready to go. It really is nice enough to ride to the start in Congers, but that would take over 3 hours to get there followed by riding all night then 3 hours back home. Trailer it is.

    We had fun. As far as I know, it was a safe night despite deer and ice.

    I didn't score well, but I believe I earned a finisher's medal.

    Edited to add picture of me at 4 am, prepping for second half.
