    My Tuesday night ride!

    Went out to Chatfield again. I like this ride on my way home at night, really peaceful and calm area to ride. I did the loop around (About 13 miles) and some spur routes/paths. I find a new area to explore everytime I go out there, been by there many times and never once rode there. I was missing out. The only downside to the night came near the end of the ride. My front tire did not want to hold the air in anymore.

    One of the spurs, got kinda narrow in spots. This trail had a few downed trees from the recent winds.










    Why not


    The path

    Riding in the dark is a blast, I love it. I know it's not for everyone, however, it should be tried at least once.

    Start with places you know well, this will make getting started a lot easier.

    That I will. Bentsen Rio Grande State Park. On the roads which are closed to cars. Unless I run over a javelina or bobcat I should be fine and it won't be too scary.

    Hey, you should call those Paranormal Stories people. They build whole episodes on those "orbs" floating in a few of those pictures.
