Newbie from NYC

Hey, I'm a college student from NYC who goes to university in the greater NY area. I love riding, day and night, and I think I have a decent low-end model Trek mountain bike that I am quite satisfied with. I've always had a bike, almost as soon as I could walk, and I like to take dirt paths whenever I can. For the past half year I've been riding my bike almost every day, either to commute or just for fun, except when the weather is really bad out. I've had some great rides along the paths in Montrčal as well as along the beaches of Santa Monica, CA.

I am a regular on Candle Power Forums (this is where my handle comes from), Blade Forums, and EDC Forums and could be considered highly knowledgeable about the subjects these sites cover. Some of you may even know me from over there.

Welcome! Welcome! Welcome! Mr. Day & Night rider! I, as well, like to ride this way as well. Something about riding at night that is just inspiring.

And if yer a total mtb rider - well there's a forum just for that - plus if you use your mtb to commute (as I do) then there's a couple of forums for that as well.

Candle Power forum, eh? Have to check them out!

Welcome! Yep, CPF...I never leave home without my Kroma Milspec. Hey, it helped me retrieve a set of headphones under the airplane seat tonight.

Over here in cycling world, though, I think you may find cycle specific lighting is better (check out Dinotte).

A lot of BFers are going on the Five Boro Bike Tour...a good way to meet 'em

I never leave home without my McLux PD-S. Useful little thing.

I've found that the Fenix L2D-CE on turbo with Sanyo Eneloop NiMH's are sufficient enough for riding... usually. It lives on my bike and when I go out for longer trips I usually strap on another, like my Surefire E2L. Those Dinotte lights look nice. Kinda pricey but I'm sure they're well worth it. Something to look into for the future, I suppose.

The tour sounds interesting. I just might go for it.
