The Gnome, The Monsignor, and other delights of Albuquerque's Halloween Bike Ride


Bicycling 11 miles with a wig and face paint is far better if you're not alone. Last night, at least 50 cyclists gathered like a freak show at Triangle Park for a Halloween joy ride through Albuquerque. From Nob Hill to downtown and Old Town, we cruised with only minimal incident -- a lost pink wing, a showdown with a muscle truck. Final stop: Marble Brewery where we met up with A Gnome, A Monsignor, and a few other freaks chillin' in the glow of downtown.

Here are a few photos from the adventure.

Saw you guys eastbound outside Nob Hill Grill - an impressive parade and truly fine halloween spectacle! Annual I hope?

Remind me never to dress up as a mime ever again. For someone as loquacious as myself, spending the better part of the day not being able to say a word was a torture worse than waterboarding.

But what a beehive it was, Juder! And Benny, believe me, your silence was just as much torture for everyone else ;-0
