Yesterday (April 6) there was a full moon. The skies were clear and the temperatures were crisp. When that happens, there’s only one thing to be done. A full moon ride.
We rode from east Madison on the SW commuter trail and down the Badger State Trail, through the tunnel, and back. Stopped for a beer after the tunnel.
Lots of rabbits in the headlights and coyotes singing to the moon (and presumably, each other).
Stats: 52 miles, 13.mph average, top speed at 23.2mph.
Respectable, especially since I was riding the single-speed Raleigh One-Way with flat pedals and regular shoes. Felt it this morning though. Quads were tired from a little too much grinding through some of the soft stuff on the BST, and my forearms were stiff and sore from bouncing around on all the ruts.
