Night riding

The last few weeks have been bad for wind – it is getting frustrating. After talking about it alot last winter and never actually doing anything about it I finally got some mountain bike lights and last weekend put them to the test. Overall – riding with lights is not as hard as you would think – it does make things a bit harder though. The first ride was along the Verderers trail which I know pretty well. Doing it in the dark made it a lot more fun though. The combination of a powerful front light mounted on the handlebars then a secondary light mounted on the helmet meant that shadows were less of an issue and visibility was pretty good.

I am gonna recommend all my mountain bike friends get lights this winter – I just got cheap chinese ones and they work great. Who knows how long they will last but so far they are well worth the money.

Here is a quick gopro edit I put together
