Rode the Montour Trail from McDonald, rather late in the day. As I was prepping my bike at the trailhead I heard what sounded like Indian drum music in the distance, which is not something you hear too often.

So I rode over and found the Red Eagle Powwow, nice setup, visitor friendly, and they were all dressed more reasonably than I was in my bike kit.
Rode to MP31.5 at Farmhouse Coffee and got there around 7pm (they close at 6, I learned). Had a snack and then reversed course, and I had all my lights on for the return leg. On the front I had a Planet Bike HID to illuminate my path, and a Planet Bike 2W LED blinky to help others see me. On the rear I had a Portland Design Works Radbot 1000 and a Cateye TL-LD1000.
On the way back home I got to see how well the HID lights up when I rode through the unlit National Tunnel. It really put out a lot of light.
The moon hadn't come up yet and this was my first truly dark ride in quite a while. A really nice ride, 33 miles.
