    Greetings from Montclair, NJ

    I am an early morning rider of the busy suburban streets of Montclair, Glen Ridge, South Orange, Cedar Grove, Orange and surrounding areas.
    My main concerns are safety and fun biking in the dark (usually around 5:30 - 6:30AM) during warm weather and in cold down to the low 30s. My biggest fear is the occasional near miss with an ulit, dark-clad jogger running in the traffing lanes of Ridgewood avenue in the pre-dawn dark. My greatest pleasure is a smooth road, legs pumping, crystal clear spring ride.
    My ride is an old TREK 400 from the early 80s with the original light blue / yellow lettering.

    Welcome to Bike Forums Mike.
    I find that using mirrors helps in traffic.

    Sounds like you need a brighter headlight so you'll see those joggers that think that just because they can see a car, everyone can see them.

    Stop by the 50+ forum and introduce yourself to the old farts that hang around there.

    When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking. Arthur Conan Doyle
