Last month I posted about riding 901 miles in the month of July.
Most responses were congratulatory on riding 900 miles in a single month. Others, however, mentioned that as long as I had already ridden 900 miles in one month, why not ride 1000 miles in a month?
Well, I took to the challenge like a bull to a red cape.
So far this month I have 860 miles on the clock. With seven whole days left in the month, it looks like I may be able to ride 1000+ for the month of August.
I have a lighting question though.
With shorter days ahead, I am doing a lot of my riding in the dark. I have a Lezyne light for the front and a Planet Bike Blinky light on the back. Is it better, for the sake of visibility, to use both lights in flashing mode? Or the front in flashing and the rear in steady mode? Or both lights on steady mode? Most of my riding, during dark hours, is in dimly lit suburban and semi-rural areas. Suggestions?
Thaks for reading and wish me luck as I go for 1000 miles.
