2011 Crotona Midnight Run: A Few Hours Until Go Time!

In just a few short hours, it will be go time. The 93rd Crotona Midnight Run.

As of 6:30pm here on Long Island, the winds outside are howling. The temperatures are holding steady at around 30° but the wind… oof. My ride to the starting line in Yonkers is about an hour on the highway. I’ll have a good feel for what I’m in for by the time I roll into the parking lot.

I Get By With a Little Help From My Friends

I’m happy to report that in addition to Soth, I will have 4 friends leaving Long Island to do the ride as well. Hopefully such good company will help me stay awake at the layover. I wasn’t able to sleep in at all today and a nap wasn’t to be. I’ll just have to be the little engine that could. I think I can, I think I can…

Check-in starts at 10:30pm with the first bike leaving the gate at the stroke of midnight. I’m hoping for a good time and most of all safe travels for everyone.

A huge ‘Thank You’ to Ramapo MC for braving the elements out there at the checkpoints and hosting this great winter ride!

Good Luck To All!

    I just got home from a 90-minute ride from Brooklyn. The wind is fierce and the temp dropped into the 20’s. It’s uncomfortable out there. Be careful, Fuzzy. Safety is more important than pride.

  2. ToadMama says:

    Yes, be careful! And try to stay warm. I can’t wait to read all the details.

      Thanks for the good (and warm) wishes, everybody!

      I’m not much of a hot-dogger so you don’t have to worry about me doing things to keep my pride in tact 🙂

      It was a great time, an interesting ride and… it was damned cold. Good stuff <3
