Rainy Friday Night

Temps in the 40's with 20+mph winds and lets not forget the constant rain...good crowd of diehards for The September Cleveland's Critical Mass Ride

You have better songs than 99% of the other videos out there. Keep up the good work!

I have to admit, with those weather conditions the sleep would be epic around here. I'd be climbing hills in my dreams.

Thanks Freight. The ride to Critical Mass and home were fun...headwind both ways My ride into Cleve is 23 miles, at least we ended the ride about 12 miles from home. My legs were a bit tight the next day as I rode the single speed, the total was just over 50 miles...good times

Nice, I love it when the lakes are wild.

Interesting to see the poor side visibility of the bikers. Makes me think about that issue more with lighting systems.

The rain and other obligations kept me home but will be there next month, snow or shine. Nice video. New to the M on the lake.

I have refletive sidewalls on my tires which does help, I also have been thinking of some kind of a side marker type light.
