Butt Rock

Mountain bike in the moonlight? Kind of sounds like a lyric from a cheesy ´80s power ballad penned by a sex-fueled hair-metal band, huh? We can just imagine some butt-rock freak in baking-flour makeup making love with the mic and using the bike’s aluminum frame as a metaphor for intercourse: riding the saddle, thrusting back and forth, shifting the action into the highest gears, feeling the machinery’s weight beneath unexplored terrain. Sigh. Well, ditch the nymphet metal and ride the 15.4-mile Pemberton Trail during Mountain Bike in the Moonlight. A helmet and a light with a three-hour life span are required for the unguided ride.
