Took a late afternoon ride today...Sunset was awesome..Enjoyed Venus and moon coming out...Nite was clear..With the right clothes, I was warm...Just thinking this is ok...Felt comfortable..Well lite up..
But not lite up enough...Not enough to not plow through glass...Had a tandem , two 10-watt bulb.Cyrgo Lite.....Also, a little spare 5 watt AA driven handle bar mount light..
The small light sure was not enough to see what the heck you are doing...Repairing the flat-rear of course-in the dark was a disaster..
It was pitch black. No street lights anywhere...I was rescued by another avid cyclists who saw my stranded condition...Decent guy..Wants to ride with our group now...Have to rethink this night riding..How do you handle flats at night?
It would have been about a four mile walk on a dark , busy road..
