2008 was another year when all the stars aligned, so the
- U of D night ride
- Beat the train and
- Tour de Troit
all fell on the same weekend.
So why not head out at 7 PM Friday night and start an epic day in Detroit. Throw in a couple of beers at the beginning of the ride, pedal till you're sober again at 5 in the morning and back on the bike at 6:30 guarantees you an interesting state of delirium by the time you get back home after 147 miles and just over 12 hours on the bike (yes, this clearly wasn't a race).
Typical Friday evening 7:30 PM at 8 Mile
Meeting up with the U of D crowd at 10 PM
Canada at night
Things you do at 3 in the morning
This picture was actually taken inside my brain
Mattmtb's fine work
Out at 6:30 to find the Beat the trainers
Riding around Detroit's landmarks
New day has almost arrived
Perfect day for the Tour de Troit
Looks to me like more riders than ever, how many???
Well, count for yourself
Just can't get enough of the D today
Last remark - I wasn't by myself, always good to know people that got nothing else to do on a nice late summer night
