Festivus of Nights Gravel Grinder

A good group of guys showed up for tonight's ride on Little Blue Trace Trail. Temps were in the upper 20's with a light wind which made for a pleasantly cool night of riding.

  1. I take it this is an out and back ride? How many miles will this be?

  2. Rich is going to head south first to ride the new 3 mile section. The ride will then come by the starting location and pickup anyone who could not make the 6:00 pm start. Total route if you do all the trail ,including the new section, is around 29 miles.

  3. Too bad you didn't get the leg lights going, you would have looked like a Planetarium
