Great pre-full moon Saturday Night Social ride. Looked like it was going to be a cold and miserable ride. Could see the clouds and fog rolling in. We were in it by the time we reached Hidden Valley. Was cool, but not cold. Still enough moon light through the cloud/fog to climb without lights....if only everybody else in the train would heed the climb without lights, it would be great. About 1/4 mile from the top, clouds/fog cleared up and we were above it all. Very nice and comfortable. Had our party at the gate. Headed back down into the ick, thinking it was going to be pretty cold....nope...remained pretty nice and comfortable all the way down. Turned out to be a perfect night for a ride.
First time for me on Blackstar. Had a great time with Glen, Denise & Sharon. Thanks for the invite Denise! There were a lot of riders and everybody was super friendly and courteous.
Full Moon Ride...was a little worried we would be shut out for the Full Moon....but the clouds stayed away and we got to enjoy the full power of the moon...so bright at times, thought that maybe we were going to need some Moon Tan Lotion....shadows were huge cast by the moon tonight. We had the trail pretty much to ourselves...only saw one other rider. Refreshments were to be had at Beeks, but the wind and the cold grove us down the hill a ways. Some fatalities were discovered in the cooler.....had a run in with Art...as usual...stay off my private road. Very cold in Hidden Valley, warmed up nicely be the time we got back to the car. Very fun ride.
Ahhhh....no jackets, no vest, no arm warmers, no knee warmers...temps were great. Climb was good, legs felt great. Realized about 1/2 mile from Beeks that I lost a bolt and washer out of my swinging dropout....D'OH!! Still made it to the top, but took it easy on the way down. Good ride today.
Nice ride
