Night rides on a mountain bike are a lot of fun, and last night’s was no exception. When I first started to ride routinely five or so years ago the local weekly mountain bike night ride was something that seemed very foreign but now I think do more mountain bike riding under the moon than I do under the sun.
Strapping a light or two on a bike and following friends through the woods ups both the difficulty and the fun factor! It also has a hidden benefit of making riding safer because approaching riders on two-way trail are much more visible than they are during the daytime. This added safety mixed with more challenging trail and the routine post ride beers and conversations make this one of my favorite rides of the week!
