I rode many long nights with this bunch when I lived there. We rode all over Chicago – west, north and south.
I am aware that Bicycle Space bike shop in the District operates a regular ride called City Explorers.
But what we really need is to take the pleasures of bike riding in the Metro Area and blend them with the pleasures of riding at night time.
Traffic is light (much much lighter) and the city lights can be seen better.
The goal of this post is to start a nighttime cycling group called DC Midnight Marauders and to drum support. We will mix DC exploration by bicycle (year-round) on either a Friday or Saturday night, plan the route in advance, and then ride everywhere. The more people we have, the more places we will be able to ride. And yes, we will start each ride about Midnight.
We will eventually have a Twitter for information related ONLY to DC Midnight Marauders as well as a meetup and this blog will be another destination for DC Midnight Marauders info.
But for now, you can reply here with your show of support or to my personal twitter profile, @jlibraryist.
Who wants to #bikedc in the dark of the night?
Thank you. I look forward to our rides.
