Tonight we rode multiple laps in the Markuri Islands on the Sleepless City route.

We had six riders tonight (Charlie, Charlotte, Chris, Tim, Zinj, and me). Melissa missed her first ride of the year as she opted for skiing instead of riding.

Charlotte was with us on Discord at the very beginning of the ride, but had audio challenges after that. She missed hearing more about Zinj’s 3D printed saddle. I was trying to encourage Zinj to attempt custom cycling shoes next.

We chatted about cycling YouTubers. We remarked that some of the big cycling YouTubers appear to be running out of new topics for videos. It could also mean that several of us watch too much YouTube cycling content.

Tim was happy to discover that Charlie is also planning to ride the middle distance at Massochistah.

In total, we rode approximately 20 miles with 485 feet of climbing.

Charlie, Charlotte, and Chris earned the Sleepless City route achievement, which doubled their XP points for the first lap. Chris also got the Ride On achievement (Gave 3 Ride Ons).
