Annual Capp's Bike Shop Moonlight Ride!!
I don't know why I'm posting this...b/c it's tomorrow night
Every year in September, Capp's Bike Shop here in town puts on the Moonlight Ride. It is pud, street, but sooo freakin' fun!! It's all about the atmosphere. Think...120 flashy, red tail lights strung out across the city at night. Starts at the shop and hits a paved path that continues for about 5-6mi. Curves onto a street and continues to the main drag. At this point, there are some refreshments...then you either continue through a ritzy neighborhood for another 8-10mi of dark boredom, or you head back the way you came and get busy on some freakin' food, yo!!
Burgers and dogs, grilled chicken, shrimp, other finger-food crap...pop...whatevah. Live music and time to chill.
It was a real struggle trying to decide on which bike to ride b/c I considered the Schwinn b/c it's a pimp roadie...then there's the crapper. But B2B talked me into represent'n fo da MTB gang...so I committed myself to the Komodo...
A helmet, headlight, and tail light is required, but this year...
SPECIAL ED IS BALLIN WITH THE LOW-RYDA'S!!!
I borrowed the lights from my dad's Harley...they have a computer box that makes 'em fade like 15 different ways from Blue/grn/red/yellow...er...uhh...sump'n. Remote control even. Heck man...I can even make 'em all flash.
I even got myself a giant graphic equalizer strapped to my Dakine Drafter that bounces to the tunes coming outta my phone:
This was the first year I did it:
Second year...(I'm taking the pic)
Third year (two yrs ago)
This year, B2B is gonna roll with me (if he's not too dadgum embarrassed to roll with the LOW-RYDA'S!!!
