Last year in March, in Central Park, the clocks moved back the second Sunday, so we started the race before dawn. Several street lamps were out on the park road, so we had several stretches of racing in a pack in the pitch black darkness @ 25-30 mph for several hundred meters.
It was like Space Mountain. It sucked. Fortunately nobody touched wheels.
