Anybody do a new years night ride.I'm planning on leaving at the stroke of midnight for a quick 10 mile ride on a nearby local bike trail.I've never done this before so I was wondering if anybody else has or any other rides on Newyears.

Drunks kill people on new years.... I would leave the bike at home... Go on a ride on 8am the next morning and you will really appreciate the lack of traffic. The other time I love to ride is during the super bowl, when traffic is mellow as well. The best no traffic day I have ever experienced was in Vancouver Canada, when the Canadians played the US for the gold medal in hockey. The streets were so empty is was strange. I don't mean to sound like I am paranoid of cars, because I am not, but I don't think new years eve is the best time to ride.
I think he is MTBing....UncleMoe

I would agree with you about doing a road ride, but he said a nearby trail, so I take that to mean he is MTBing, which is a fine idea to me. If he is, he should simply consider driving to the trailhead and riding from there.

Have fun, be safe.
Thanks for the concern....PEDDLEFOOT

...I will be on a closed trail so no worries of traffic.I did think about the road but I considered the traffic and thought otherwise.I won't be more than 5 miles from home at any point so I think it will be fairly safe.I live about 0.25 miles from the trail so I'll be alright getting there.
