A swift ride around the city at night. This ride is definitely no-drops, but has a little bit faster pace than some of the more family friendly rides.

This happens on a Monday because there’s minimal traffic that night of the week, and because I can’t make any other night of the week :)

We’ll meet at 11:45pm, and leave at 12:15 am from Friendship park.
Helmets encouraged
Lights are MANDATORY
Smiles required
Healthy appetite recommended
Stop at red lights/stop signs
If the group gets cut in half by a red light, we’ll pull over and stop to wait for everyone else
Use turn signals
Stay in the correct lane (right most of the time, sometimes the center lane, sometimes left if there’s a turn)
If it’s safe to let cars pass, let them.
If it’s not safe to let cars pass, don’t let them.

If it’s raining (Or snowing, or below 20°) at 11, we’ll cancel.

Ending at Ritter’s Diner – bring cash, or be ready to use their ATM.

Monday is March 4th, although I realize that most of the riding will occur in the wee hours of Tuesday March 5, 2013.

You are correct on that front. If any mods see this, can you correct the thread title?

^Yep, title edited. All are welcome to PM me anytime if you need legit fixes on your posts.

I’m hoping to join one of these midnight rides. Not at all convenient, but it just seems like a great time to ride familiar places at unfamiliar times.

What time do you expect the ride to finish?

usually around 230ish. Maybe earlier. I think we normally leave the diner around 3

I’m wondering if in the future, and when feasible, these rides could correlate with Federal holidays on Mondays so us 9-5ers could participate

Not sure how often that happens, but it would be cool when it did

P.S. I’m not a 9-5, more like a 9am-10pmer, but still have off on Federal holidays

Ritter’s isn’t open for them.
There’s not really many end places convenient.

and not to be rude (it’s just that I’ve explained this many times), but these rides happen on a certain day/time because there were no rides that worked with my schedule, so I started one. I suggest others do the same :)
The more rides, the better.

Presuming your schedule generally doesn’t change from week to week as far as Mondays go, my suggestion would still apply and wouldn’t change the time or day of week

But also, I just realized, my proposal doesn’t make any sense because you’re actually riding Tuesday morning, not Monday morning

Usually, if a holiday is involved, I’ll postpone by a week, because it’s difficult to find places to eat in the Shadyside/Bloomfield/Oakland area that are open at that time, and for holidays, they all close until Tuesday morning.

I’m a day-shifter also but I think this is a cool ride so I’ll get to work early, catch a snooze before the “shift” starts, and drink plenty of coffee during the day ! As I believe the old Warren Zevon song says, “I’ll sleep when I’m dead.”

just a head’s up, I might have to postpone a week if I can’t get over this sickness. I’ll update monday morning.

i hope the forecast is wrong — i was getting excited about the return of these rides!


Erica

me too. I can’t sleep, so in the spirit of past rides, I’ll show up feeling like crap, but feel pretty good by the end.
