Nighttime riding in the country. Dangerous?
Where i live its extremely hilly, and the roads have alot of curves where the road isn't visible sometimes because its blocked by trees on the curves. As well there aren't many police around so people frequently drive 60+ down these country roads (especially kids), where there are no shoulders and only 1 lane.
I wanted to ride tonight when I got home at 11:30pm. But I only have 1 taillight, 1 white light in front, and no reflective clothing. I decided to call it a night when I saw how dark it was when I turned off my car, and go riding in the morning.
Is it save to ride at night like that? What do you guys do when you ride days at a time where u probably do ride at night in the country? Thx.
