After skipping usual weekly rides, I was convinced to do the TNTR upon leaving work late Thursday evening...
8:33 Leave Work
9:14 Leave Paper Street with EB pedaling East for Taco Ride.
10:03 Arrive at Wabash Trail Head
Put the hammer down following the 200 foot silhouette made by EB's lamp behind me.
... Pass hundreds of reflectors and head lamps headed back towards trail head.
10:33 Arrive in Mineola
Get beer, drink beer, find lame people, buy beer, ride back to Half-Way point
Find fire and friends
Hammer back via S.Omaha bridge
1:13 Tear bell from handle bar that quit working with one night of use. Probably scratch EB's Steam Roller in process with bell ricochet.
Launch off triple steps in front of business establishment on SS road bike.
1:23 Arrive at Donut Stop and have the best donut session ever. 7 pastries downed for me. Find out it's EB's birthday -- What a DB.
2:34 Leave Donut Stop enlightened, dusty and tired.
2:43 Cruise through the Zero Depth entry to the fountain on Creighton's Plaza strip.
2: Very Late. Sprint up hill and kick out, ghost riding bike into neighbor's bushes -- found curb in the mean time. Probably screwed up wheel pretty bad.
50 plus miles of pure pedaling goodness.
