Un-Lenexa Midnight Ride is a GO! (Sign up!)

I've been told that the ride shouldn't present a problem, I just need to get a head count on who will be attending. So, go ahead and sign up! If you don't sign up, you won't get a map of the route, and I won't be accounting for you. Please sign up once for each person that will be riding their own bicycle.

We will depart just after midnight on July 12, 2009 from Merriam Marketplace, so get there early enough to have your bike ready to roll. The total route is 15 miles or so, but there are some hills you'll have to be ready to climb or walk up. We'll re-group, and this will be a NO DROP ride.

A few administrative things you really need to know:
  • I'm not a helmet zealot, but helmets are required for this ride.
  • A rear blinkie and something resembling a headlight are required. I'd appreciate it if you could make sure they will last for an hour or two.
  • Everyone is responsible for their own safety (and guardians of their minors)
  • We will obey the traffic laws.
  • I recommend wearing light-colored and/or reflective clothing and accessories.
  • Part of this route goes through a CAVE. That means that there may be condensation, mud, or other slick surfaces along the route, especially in the cave. Please be careful.
  • If you plan on bringing your kids, make sure that they also have lights, and can ride 15 miles or more without a problem.
With that... start chomping at the bit! There's only about a month left!

I'd love to join you, but (self plug), I'll be in Colorado recovering from my 2nd Triple Bypass. Have fun!
