The Night Train was out last night and was eleven strong. The pace started out mellow and nice on the 1st climb (Canyon Hollow) but turned anti-social on climbs 2 (Ghost) and 3 (Canyon Hollow again).
I usually avoid Clarks any more during the day due to the traffic but the night rides are different. No crowds at night. Although we did run into two guys coming up Clarks last night.
Here is a tip....we all know the yield rule. The climber has the right away and the downhiller must yield. But if you are climbing and see a rider coming down. Don't keep hammering. Let up a little. Give the downhiller a chance to brake and shed some speed.
Clarks at night seems twice as fast. Someone will eventually end up in the ER but no injuries last night (and Rico was even wearing the cursed yellow shoes)
We fueled up on pancakes and bacon at the local Village Inn. And I actually drank some water (may have been the only water I drank yesterday besides the half bottle during the ride).
Anyone know how much a new kidney goes for on ebay?
