Record Night Ride crowd greets NiteRider

Rich, one of the new guys in Peninsula, was perched on the southbound rise off the Lock 29 Trailhead parking lot, counting the Night Riders heading north for the evening's ride. His tally: A record 215 cyclists!

Thank you to everyone who came, making it our biggest Night Ride ever! Thanks so much to Tommy from NiteRider, who brought his recently-repaired rig, his vast lighting and cycling knowledge, and some cool lights for folks to demo. (A new Night Rider asked if Tommy comes to every Century Cycles Night Ride. We can only wish, but we are crossing fingers he comes back to us on his 2010 rounds.)

And congratulations to Ken Haver, who won the NiteRider MiNewt Mini-USB light!

In the blur of bike lights and bicycles, I seem to recall a few photographs being taken on Saturday night, so we'll see if we can get those posted here in the next day or two. In the meantime, mark your calendars for the next Night Ride on Friday, July 10 -- and let's see if Rich can count higher than 215.
