A relatively large crowd tonight: Thanks to Brownen, Reg, Lisa, Jeff, Demetre, Gord, Thi, Dru, and Darryl for joining me on tonight's ride.
We had lots of fun with a quick Taylor Creek loop, then tackling the flats on the east side of the train tracks, climbing up to Loblaws and returning to the east side of the tracks via the southern portion of Crothers Wood. Then with the setting sun forcing some riders back home, Reg, Lisa, Gord, Demetre and I did some night time riding back through Crothers Wood.
As always, a ton of fun and a couple of videos. If you're wondering why my videos always sound like the were taken by Darth Vader while he was having an asthma attack, it's because the microphone on my camera is mounted on the back (towards the picture/video taker). Because I don't have a mount, I'm taking photos and videos holding the camera up to my face to try an at least point it vaguely in the right direction, and I wind up breathing directly into the microphone.
This is also why the camera work is always so shaky - I'm riding one-handed while doing all of this.
It adds up to some interesting video, however. If you watch closely, you can even see where I missed a turn (too busy looking at the camera!) and wound up bush-whacking for a brief period.
