I thought I was going to be k-solo for a while. I wanted to stay visible but start riding and I managed to find a separate little loop that is all on grass/dirt and is all within plain view of the comcast center. oddly enough, it is fairly technical, a tight turn around a tree, an off camber descent with some loose dirt, and some darkness. It's about .4 miles long.
kevin showed up and we monkeyed with his headset for a bit and then took off, in the end it was 3 laps of the regular loop with the mini loop added in (also made for 3 additional trips up the big hill).
