A 'good' ride is one that you can walk away. A'great' ride is one after which you can use the bike again.

 a crit on mountain bikes.

Usually there are technical features involved, I.e. stairs and parking garages, requiring the use of FAT tires or FATTER tires

MBruns...thanks for the date.  Much later in the year this time around. 

This event involves three separate stair sections and quite a bit of climbing which includes going up a 4 or 5 story parking garage (then you get to go back down again).  If memory serves each lap was maybe a mile long.  There is also some freeride stuff going on.  It is a pretty good time.

Two years ago the Fun Men class ended up running after dark.  Last year we ran before sunset.  Either way you don't need a light or anything.  The course is very well lit at night.
