A Seattle reader sent this video in, showcasing a a gathering of the Seattle Randonneurs, shot by Dan McComb.

“Last December while working on a film about the Solstice, I got wind of an unusual bunch of people who ride all night long on the darkest night of the year. I knew I had to meet them. Ride organizer Joe Platzner graciously allowed us to follow him and his riders though the night. It was a great adventure, and we met some amazing people. Two of them, Greg Cox and Andy Speier, later joined our filmmaking team on June 18 and made a big contribution to our successful event coverage, which we’re currently editing into the film that will become”

When I was on my tour, I hated riding along the 101 at night. The few times that I rolled into the camp sites after dark were my least favorite experiences but I guess it’s a lot easier on the nerves to be with a group.
