Night riding season!

Fall is here and the light of day will be shorter so that can only mean one thing "night rides" will begin to be the norm. We did our first ride of the season and we had a decent turnout with 5 guys including myself. We had a newbie and a roadie and the other three of us ride anything. The new guy did well considering he only had his bike about one week. The roadie (Ron) is a really strong rider but I think he went back in time to get his bike, he had a mountain cycle circa 94. That thing is a welders nightmare and it just bounced all over the trail but he still rode strong all night. We stayed conservative in where we rode but I hope that will change and we will venture into the GWF for some of the rides. It was a good start and hopefully we will keep the people coming out unlike last year where it wound dwindleing down to no one. Anyone reading this in the Staunton, Harrisonburg or waynesboro area please feel free to join us. We will be meeting at Black Dog bikes and leaving from there at 6 pm..Joe
