Gumby and I finally got out on the bikes to do some night riding. You see when you ride in the daytime you have to deal with the burning sun, lots more traffic, and ugly sights. At night the temps cool off, there is less cars out and you kinda blend into the landscape. Believe it or not we were out on "Road Bikes". Yes, you heard that right. Gumby was on his Full Carbonium Orbea and I was aboard the Mario Cipollini "best bike" Cannondale. I complained the whole ride as how we were not really riding and merely cheating on these bikes. I was afraid to post this since some of the DBD members up in the northern lands might read it and chastise us. Anyway, I don't know what say except that we ended up with a quick 40 mile ride. Took Rich rd all the way west to Malta went north to Old state, dodged some rain hiding in Adee Woods. and then rolled north on Malta to Kirkland then headed north on Pearl to Baseline headed east to 23 and then came back on brickville. We really missed Hellmut since he was on a special mission tonight and it is the last time he will be excused for not showing up. We will be rolling on road bikes for a short time until we get back on the "dirty" bikes, which is where the soul is.
