Full Moon Monty Pictures and Report
We were blessed with some great weather last night for the 2014 edition of the Full Moon Monty Gravel Grinder. The only problem was the cloud cover prevented the full moon from showing and lighting the way for us.
It was good to see a tandem out last night. The Little Blue Trace Trail is perfect for an enjoyable evening ride with double the horsepower which was especially useful with that headwind on the return trip.
We departed promptly at 6:15 pm on the nights adventure. For some reason Christopher tried to take a few short cuts - notice Mark Krause. (Yellow Dirty Dog jersey) riding to the trail entrance while Christopher cuts across. Later in the evening one of his short cuts got him lost.
That is one bright tail light.
The trail was in great shape for tonight's ride.
Barbie Miller enjoying the tailwind. We had a contest of who had the longest flowing hair. She won...
JP was having trouble with his knee. He injured it at a recent cyclocross race. Even with one leg he put the hurting on us.
It is always nice to regroup at the far end shelter. For the Festivus of Nights ride we plan to have some beverages on site for everyone to enjoy.
One of the several bridges that we had to cross.
After the ride we enjoyed a nice meal at the Corner Cafe'. That place has some great pies and ice cream. Mark enjoyed his.
