Solstice Ride

June 20 at 7:30 pm

Let’s ride bikes all night on the shortest night of the year!

Alas, the torch was not formally passed on and some Fool left us in the dark… 😉
We have to keep the legacy alive!

Last year I went solo on such a journey and I feel a need to make this happen, hopefully this year with a fellowship.

This is a LONG (40+ mi), not-a-loop ride. Swift/casual pace with stops. This is not a “no drop” style ride. Due to it’s nature the group has historically thinned significantly between start and end. We won’t aim at stranding anyone in an obscure place in the wee hours, but consider this eventuality. This ride is challenging but that makes it more memorable. I will try to create a trek that is as eccentric as the rides I remember.

Be prepared. Bring layers, lights, libations and light fare. Tune your bike. There will be at least one stop at a 24h facility to replenish. Leave no trace!

Let there be music! Let us watch our sun dip and reappear and celebrate by turning our wheels in between!

We’ll crank gears as we shift into summer…
